Fishing & Fisheries
The OFAH has been a non-governmental pioneer in conserving our fisheries since 1928. Outdoors enthusiasts concerned for the future of Ontario’s fish resources formed the Ontario Federation of Anglers. This new Federation consisted of ten community-based groups forming a grassroots alliance working to improve and sustain provincial fisheries. The newly-formed Federation sought changes at all levels, from stocking local streams to a provincial petition to complete a survey of Ontario’s game fish. The Federation’s passionate members and credible influence, helped forge constructive relationships with all levels of government that continue to this day. In 1947, several hunting organizations joined forces with the Federation to become the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) who remain the province’s largest non-profit, fish and wildlife conservation-based organization and the VOICE of anglers and hunters.
