Due to our Group's lobbying efforts, Miller Lake was one of only eight Ontario lakes included in the 2012 MNR fish study of inland lakes.
Monitoring stations were positioned at several points in the lake during August 2012. Captured fish were studied for type, size, and specific toxins, notably mercury. The amount of fish that can be safely eaten will be published in the "Guide to Eating Ontario Sports Fish" on the MNR web site.
In addition, factors such as water temperature and dissolved oxygen were also noted.
This study will be a good benchmark for future studies as the climate continues to change. It is displayed below.
