Did You Know?

Since its establishment in 1995, the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal has been presented to 156 outstanding individuals.

Walleye

Saskatchewan's fish emblem is the walleye (Sander vitreus).  Saskatchewan is known for its world class fresh water fishing and during the province's centennial in 2005, Saskatchewan Environment held a Provincial Fish Emblem Contest.  Ten thousand people voted and the walleye was the overwhelming choice.  On January 4, 2005, a walleye measuring 36.5" in length, 22.5" in girth and 18.3 pounds was caught in the frozen waters of Tobin Lake.
