DEC encourages Lake Ontario anglers and those interested in the fishery to view the pre-recorded presentations to learn about the research and monitoring that informs the management of New York's most highly used fishing water. Biologists will not be presenting information at the virtual meeting, so participants are advised to view the presentations prior to the meeting.

Following the presentations, anglers will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage fisheries managers and biologists from DEC and the U.S. Geological Survey in a more detailed dialogue about information presented.
