Question Red Font in the Regs

Silly question I suppose I was just wondering if someone out there knew what the red font in the regs denotes.

At first I thought they were all stocked ponds but it does not line up with the stocking reports.

Then I thought it meant that they were opened all year ... NOPE

Maybe it just means that someone at the office wanted to break up the black for no apparent reason ... I don't think it really matters over all but I am more just curious.

I called the fish and wildlife office but no answer and didn't think it was important enough to worry about leaving a message.

If anyone knows please feel free to share.

Thanks

I believe they are the new changes for this year...

Black print is cheaper to use

Look in the stocked waters section

"Stocked waters are listed on this website in the colour of their respective Zones, i.e. Zone 1, Stocked Eastern Slopes Waters - red; Zone 2, Stocked Parkland-Prairie Waters - blue; and Zone 3, Stocked Northern Boreal Waters - green."

They are stocked lakes. They only list the stocked lakes with special regs though. Many of the other stocked regs appear in a list earlier in the guide and many more just aren't mentioned but have same regs...

Clear as mud? Good lol

And people get paid a good wage with great benefits to formulate and implement these regs and get them written down. Perhaps we should pay them more.

Red means new or special...if I had red font I would type like that periodically...being special and all.
