In this installment of #notesfromthefield we share a photo essay of our work on this project!
A Generations Old Practice
Red River Métis citizens have known and observed walleye spawning in the area of Lake Winnipegosis for generations. For this project, we provided technical support to the Manitoba Métis Federation in their efforts to confirm the continued presence and vitality of the lake's population by tagging and tracking the fish. We set up a receiver station and tagged the walleye with external telemetry tags to track their movements in the spring as they head to their spawning grounds.
Protecting What Matters
The work we conducted, will help to inform lake management decisions for this important food source and economic resource for Red River Métis citizens. Work like this supports their role in stewarding the waters throughout the Red River Métis National Homeland and protecting their culture and ways of life.
We couldn't help but share these fantastic images of a few days spent in continuing the efforts to protect what matters most!
