The province announced Saturday it launched a new interactive website to coincide with World Fisheries Day.
"The new Lake Information for Anglers website is an interactive, innovative and valuable tool for anglers to use when planning their next outdoor adventure to enjoy one of Manitoba’s many fishing opportunities," stated Agriculture and Resource Development Minister Blaine Pedersen in a news release.
"Over time, additional information will be added to this website to further assist Manitobans and visitors explore the world-class recreational fisheries that Manitoba has to offer."
The new, interactive website provides information in an easily accessible format to assist anglers in planning their next fishing trip, according to the release. Anglers can find information about fishing divisions, lake contour maps, fisheries assessment summaries, aquatic invasive species and boat launches for numerous drive-to lakes in Manitoba.
Anglers can also find historical and current information on fish species stocked across Manitoba including the species stocked, when stocking occurred, and the size and number of fish stocked.
A mobile version of the website will be launched at a later date, according to the release.
World Fisheries Day, which takes place each year on November 21, is intended to help recognize the importance of maintaining sustainable fisheries across the world.
