The Information and Privacy Commissioner of Yukon determined Environment Yukon must release harvest data from hunting outfitters, Yukon News reports. After an applicant sought to find out the harvesting rates of several animals, a pair of hunting outfitters refused to share the data, as they claimed releasing such information could hurt their businesses’ bottom line.

Environment Yukon Spokesperson Roxanne Stasyszyn said the department agreed with the recommendations laid out in the commissioner’s ruling.
