UINR is looking for feedback from people who fish in the winter on Barachois Ponds in the Bras d’Or Lake*. We want to know how these ponds are used by fish and fishers in the winter.

For each pond you fish throughout the entire season, please record what species you catch and/or see, how many fish and their approximate size/condition. Participants who complete the survey by March 31, 2019 will be entered into a draw for one of two $50 Canadian Tire gift certificates. You may complete surveys for each time and each pond that you fish, which will provide you with multiple entries for the draw.

*Barachois Ponds are shallow brackish coastal ponds separated from the Bras d’Or Lake by a barrier beach usually of sand or cobble. It may or may not have a regular or periodic inlet/outlet to the Lake. This survey does not include harbours, coves or fully open lagoons.
