Public Meetings to Discuss Lake Ontario Fisheries Status.
DEC will be conducting three public meetings during the month of March for the annual “State of Lake Ontario” discussions. These meetings provide an opportunity for anglers and others to interact with scientists who study the lake’s fisheries. The DEC, United States Geological Survey, and Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources biologists will make a number of presentations, including updates on the status of trout and salmon fisheries, forage fish, lake trout, warmwater fish, and sea lamprey control. There will also be an update on the status of Lake Ontario Sportfishing Restoration Program projects. Meeting details (http://www.dec.ny.gov/press/72486.html), including dates, times and locations can be found in the DEC press release.
