Engaging Youth Through the Asian Carp Canada Program

Asian Carp

 


Asian Carp Canada launched a Spot the Difference campaign this past August to show the dramatic impacts that could result if Asian Carp became established in the Great Lakes. Three Canadian magazines with national distribution will print a puzzle that asks the reader to “spot the differences” in a typical Canadian waterscape before and after an Asian carp invasion.
 

You can play too! The puzzles can be found in Owl Magazine’s September Learning Edition, Explore Magazine after September 8th, and Outdoor Canada Magazine after October 26th.

Answer keys are available on www.asiancarp.ca

Asian Carp Innovative Solutions Competition 

Registration is open for the Asian Carp Innovative Solutions Competition, to be held on March 5, 2016 at the University of Toronto Scarborough. This competition is open to post-secondary students (individually or in teams) who have an idea on how to prevent or manage an Asian carp invasions. The goals are to: increase knowledge about Asian carps prevention efforts, provide students with an opportunity to showcase their critical thinking skills, and give them an opportunity to develop an idea that might be instrumental in the prevention, management or elimination of Asian carps in the Great Lakes. The event will be used to develop ideas that will inform technology and policy in the future and gain the important and fresh perspective from a younger generation.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
