Lake Ontario’s Waterkeeper Raises Concern Over Fish Health

Lake Ontario” Waterkeeper Mark Mattson is concerned over the increasing plastics found in the lake and what it means for fish health. In addition to fighting this growing blight, Mattson is busy promoting The water mark project responsible for gathering local knowledge in the form of people’s personal water stories, and the “Swim drink fish” initiative that includes the swim guide, an app for mobile devices to give real time updates on water quality for over 8,000 beaches around the world. This week on Blue Fish Radio Mark speaks with Lawrence about these and other projects underway designed to reconnect people with their water in positive ways, and how such personal connections are essential if we are to ensure the future sustainability of our rivers and lakes.
