Over the last 20 years, our fisheries work has had two major initiatives: the first, to conserve and improve habitat for native fish populations with a special focus on fish species that are Threatened or At Risk. The second, to ensure that Alberta’s anglers have a wide variety of fishing locations to choose from and a healthy population of fish to try their luck on. We will continue to focus on these two initiatives for many years to come.
