SVSFE is a local non-profit organization dedicated to “Giving Fish a Helping Hand”. The main focus of our organization is fisheries education, enhancement and research. Our team works closely with other local user groups and Manitoba Fisheries Branch, by doing meaningful work with the common goal of ensuring sustainable fisheries and improving angling opportunities for now and the future.

Swan Valley Sport Fishing Enhancement has recently initiated several projects where many fish have been tagged. These tags provide a “name” for the fish. Tags vary in color and size but all have a number. Telemetry tags as seen above make it possible to track fish movement indicating habitat requirements and fish behaviour. Beneficial information can be collected through recapture of tagged fish. It is important that anglers leave the tags intact if tagged fish are being released. Whether fish are released or kept, providing the following information is beneficial! You can find more information about local studies under programs and research.
