Species Notes for this Location:
Salvelinus fontinalis is native to Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Nova Scotia and was intentionally introduced as a game species to Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan (FishBase, 2001; Crossman, 1991)
Management Notes for this Location:
Salvelinus fontinalis was successfully eradicated from previously fish-less Bighorn Lake, Alberta, Canada from 1997-2000 using continuously fished mixed-mesh monofilament nylon gill nets, to study the effects of removal on cascading trophic interactions, resulting in significant recovery towards fish-less lake ecology (Parker & Schindler 2006).
