Brook Schryer, Aquatic Invasive Species Outreach Liaison with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, will teach you about the main identification features of Asian carps and the species that get confused with carp! He will also walk you through how to report any invasive species using the Invading Species Hotline and EDDMapS Ontario.

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.

Many of their descendants still live in the area.

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