BURLINGTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 26, 2010) - The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, met with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) on Monday, January 25, 2010 in Burlington, Ontario.

Discussion at the meeting touched on the Lake Ontario Atlantic Salmon Restoration project, aquatic invasive species prevention and control and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement between Canada and the United States. The meeting also included consultation on Phase II of Canada's Economic Action Plan.

This meeting provided a great opportunity for meaningful discussion and action between Fisheries and Oceans Canada and OFAH with respect to fish and fish habitat conservation, protection and restoration.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada considers OFAH an important stakeholder and partner with whom we currently work together on many initiatives relating to fish and fish habitat in Ontario.
