More than 70 species of fish inhabit the near-pristine waters of Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes. Watch gulls, herons, eagles and pelicans as they feed in these waters. As many as 50 shipwrecks rest within the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area, attesting to the power of the lake and its legendary storms.

The management of this vast area will ensure its conservation for the enjoyment and appreciation of present and future generations of Canadians. Traditional activities and ecologically sustainable uses including fishing and boating will continue to be enjoyed.
