FishCatch FishTag

Rob Ludwig of Norwalk, Ohio recently caught a Walleye with an MNR tag on it. In contacting the MNR we got this answer on what to do.

“ Over the next two years there will be a substantial number of tagged walleye in the area. We have developed a process for dealing with angler caught tagged walleye which relies on anglers contacting our office and reporting information that includes tag number, date of capture, location, size attributes of walleye (total length, weight) etc. Our new tag inventory includes a contact number on the tag but we have also been using our older stock of tags that does not have a contact number but does indicate our unit and Ministry acronyms. If you or anyone else would like to report a tagged walleye caught from the area you can either contact our office at 519-371-0420 where our administrative staff will be able to collect the necessary information or e-mail Teena Glynn, Administrative Assistant, teena.glynn@ontario.ca , or contact me (Arunas Liskauskas) at arunas.liskauskas@ontario.ca.”
