Fisheries Management Zone Maps

Legal Boundaries of Ontario's Fisheries Management Zones (and Border Waters Area)

 

As of January 2008, Ontario's recreational fishing regulations are based on 20 Fisheries Management Zones. Anglers can use the map below, or the maps in the Ontario Fishing Regulations Summary, to familiarize themselves with the locations of these new zones.

 

If you plan to fish near the boundary of a zone, please review the zone maps below to identify the legal boundary. These maps have been prepared by the Office of the Surveyor General of Ontario, and PDF copies can be downloaded from the links.

 

For each zone there is an overview map. For many zones there are additional maps to show details of the boundary.
