Fish derby helps promote lake health

Pelican Lake attracted hundreds in early March for the event

A total of 885 fishermen and women registered for the Healthy Lake Committee ice fishing derby March 3 on Pelican Lake, near Ninette.

The organization works to ensure a lake clear of algae and healthy fish stocks, mainly through the installation of an aeration system that keeps the bottom of the lake clear of sediments, which can encourage algal blooms that deplete oxygen. By adding more oxygen to the water, more of the nutrients can safely decompose year round.
