Fish farming

Encompassing all the techniques of fish production and rearing, fish farming was one of the many activities (until 2017) of Pêche Sport du Réserve Baskatong inc. The culture of walleye allowed early on to preserve and renew the AFC resource. This action and other actions have contributed to guaranteeing quality fishing.

Sport fishing in the Baskatong reservoir carried out its last stocking of walleye in the summer of 2016. Since 2017, other measures have been taken to preserve, protect and share our beautiful body of water.
