Great Slave Lake fishing industry: R42-3/1963-10E-PDF

"Great Slave Lake produces some of the best fish caught in western freshwater lakes. At the present time there is a commercial quota of 9,000,000 pounds on its whitefish and lake trout, but some officials of the Federal Department of Fisheries believe that this amount could be raised to 12,000,000 pounds if market and other conditions so warranted and ancillary fishing operations took out the coarser gradefish. Given a market for these coarse fish, i.e. ciscoes, inconnus, pike, suckers, burbots and other species, the lake might easily yield an equal quantity of them also."--p. 2.
