    Timber Management Guidelines for the Protection fo Fish Habitat

    Portable bridgeIf your logging operation has the potential to disturb fish habitat, due to the construction of trails that cross streams or logging near shorelines, you may require approval from the MNRF or your local Conservation Authority. A number of factors are involved, such as the size of the area being drained by a stream and the sensitivity of the fish species present, so you'll need local expert advice.

    On its website, the MNRF provides a downloadable document of the Timber Management Guidelines for the Protection of Fish Habitat. These guidelines, however, can't always take local, specific situations into consideration so you'll need experts to use their discretion to adapt the guidelines to your particular landscape.

    In southern Ontario, conservation authorities are responsible for issuing permits related to land alterations affecting water. If your watershed is not managed by a conservation authority, contact your local MNRF office. Follow the links to contact your local MNRF office or your local Conservation Authority.
