A pair of publications produced annually by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Natural resources, covering over 1,100 of Ontario’s lakes, rivers and other fishing spots. They provide up-to-date advice for anglers and consumers of the recommended levels of consumption for various types of fish. Each location contains a table that defines the fish that can be caught there, and the category that each one belongs to, based on rigorous scientific testing for a range of harmful chemicals present.
The design features a simple geometric fish repeated across the cover in a grid-based ‘shoal’, reflecting the fish in their natural habitat and the tabulation of data. They feature a common colour pairing, with silver on blue for the Northern edition and blue on silver for the Southern edition.
Designed by Fretz, the publications also features the iconic Trillium symbol that he designed while working with Ernst Barenscher at Norman B. Hathaway Associates ten years before in 1972.
