Margie Manthey is a true local champion for her numerous efforts to improve the future of fish and fishing on Wolf Lake. The lake is located near Westport in eastern Ontario in a region known as South Frontenac. A passionate angler, Margie has been instrumental in rehabilitating walleye spawning beds, replacing “perched” culverts, and strengthening shoreline resilience. But, her main passion is incentifying anglers to switch away from using lead weights and jigs. Her “get the lead out” program resulted in over 80 kilos of lead fishing tackle being voluntarily turned in by anglers in just one year. Margie is our guest on The Blue Fish Radio Show.

Scottie Martin and Lawrence Gunther discuss how anglers can help curb the spread of invasive species along with all the rest of the Blue Fish News for March 20 2023 on CFN Live.
Safeguarding Canada’s natural assets from the impacts of invasive species begins with preventing their introduction. But it doesn’t end there. According to Jenna White, program development coordinator for the Invasive Species Centre, anglers can also play a role in preventing the spread of invasives, reporting when an invasive has been captured or observed, monitoring the spread, participating or leading initiatives to remove invasives, supporting invasive species research, and providing input to officials responsible for invasive species policy and regulations. And let’s not forget education and awareness. Jenna is our guest on The Blue Fish Radio Show available as a podcast or by visiting the Blue Fish Canada YouTube channel. Find out more about how you can get involved, and how the Invasive Species Centre can answer your questions and support your invasive species community project.
