Species Statistics

Canada Lifer Map


Ontario Lifer Map


This is the statistics from my species list. As a personal standard, the species counted here must demonstrate an intentional bite and they must be hooked in the mouth. This list was last updated on Dec 30, 2015.

Effort is measured differently depending on context. Locally (in Ontario), effort is defined as days spent in an attempt to target a new species. Some local species may have been caught incidentally and those species are given either 1 full effort day or a fraction of an effort day if another new species was caught on the same day. During extended fishing trips abroad, effort is defined by the total days spent fishing during that trip.
