The traditional territory and family lands of the Temagami First Nation, n’Daki Menan, encompasses hundreds of lakes and waterways, including the majestic Lake Temagami. These water systems are home to an abundance of wildlife, including the common loon and lake trout. Water is regarded as sacred to many First Nations and they feel that it is their responsibility to protect it as well as Mother Earth for future generations.
The loon and the trout coexist harmoniously in the deep cold lakes of Northern Ontario. The loon is an expert diver and visual predator that catches and eats its prey, small trout and other fish, head first under water. The loon usually hunts fish at depths between four and ten meters but can dive up to 70 meters and remain under water for a full minute. The lake trout is adapted to living in lakes with low levels of nutrients, high dissolved oxygen levels and deep cold areas.
Lake trout prefer to swim deep at an average of 45 meters of water and reach an average length of 24 to 36 inches and weight of 15 to 40 pounds. Rainbow trout, named for their iridescent colourful pattern, are in fact not a trout at all but a species of salmon. They are on average smaller than the lake trout and can live in a wider range of conditions in lakes, ponds and rivers in Ontario.
