Chris Robinson

Manager of Fish and Wildlife Conservation Programs
Chris has been with the OFAH, for the most part, since 2002. He worked first with the OFAH’s old Fisheries Research Unit, helping to get it started, before briefly straying back to MNRF to work on Walleye in the Kawarthas. He returned to the OFAH for the start of the Lake Ontario Atlantic Salmon Restoration Program, coordinating that through to 2018 when he moved on to become the Manager of Fish and Wildlife Conservation Programs. Chris has a B.Sc. from Guelph and a M.Sc. (on Muskellunge) from Trent. After Guelph he worked in various capacities with MNRF, largely out of the Glenora Fisheries Station on Lake Ontario, before joining the OFAH. In his spare time he is known for his support of the CFL, getting out-fished by his nephews, and being the most likely person to have a hardcopy of a file from fifteen years ago.
