Manitoba Fisheries' mandate is to ensure sustainable use of the fisheries resource. Management programs are developed to provide the greatest benefits to Manitobans, by maintaining or enhancing fish populations and habitat, monitoring harvest and habitat alterations, and allocating resources for the best return.

Sustainable Fisheries Management

The Manitoba government has a mandate to secure the sustainability and certification of our commercial fisheries. Manitoba continues to advance this mandate by conducting annual assessments of fish populations for many of our largest commercial fisheries, as well as, developing stock assessment reports and fisheries management plans.
