Abstract: We investigate the effect that two distinctly different fisheries' management strategies have on a single population of Lake Whitefish in Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada. A system of three differential equations, with stochasticity, are presented. They are an extension from a single management system into a dual management system. We analyzed the existence, and, stability of solutions to this system of differential equations. Numerical simulations are given for a case study between the Saugeen-Ojibway, and, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. Results indicate that it is possible for coexistence between these two fisheries, as well as the Lake Whitefish, over a time span of 100 years.
