Gill net issue on Great Lakes

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is coping with a major gill net problem.  Since November, 2015 Conservation Officers have removed more than seven kilometres of gill nets in Lake Huron and Lake Superior.  Those nets contained thousands of kilograms of rotting fish.  The latest discovery of an abandoned gill net was near the Montreal River in Lake Superior.  Ministry staff removed the net last Thursday which contained hundreds of rotting walleye, whitefish, lake trout, rainbow trout and salmon.  The ministry is asking anyone who knows anything about this illegal activity to call it.
