Safely Eating Ontario Fish

Here's a link to Ontario's Guide and Interactive Map to help you identify the types and amounts of Ontario fish that are safe to eat. This is a 2017/18 Guide. I understand the guide is updated every two years so check back again for the next update.

If you want to use the map for a specific lake, simply enter the lake you are interested in the search bar. Once the lake is highlighted on the map, click once for the lake's District, Latitude and Longitude. If you've got the correct lake, then simply click on the "Consumption Advisory Table" link for that lake.

Tight lines is only one part of fun Ontario fishing. Good company and tasty breakfast, lunch and dinner are just as important. Good Eating!
