Dr. Steven Cooke from the Cooke Lab at Carleton University joins Angelo with an update on his fish tagging project on the Rideau Lakes. How long does it take to capture and tag 1000 fish, and where do fishermen fit into the study?

The Chaga Mushroom King, Jerry Ouellette is back with treats from the forest for Angelo to sample. What delicious treasure is on this week’s menu? New Canadian “Tweens” are at a higher risk of drowning, according to a report prepared by the Life Saving Society. Barbara Byers joins Angelo to talk about the report, and how to reverse this trend.
