Comment End -- Draft Great Lakes Action Agenda (GLAA) to Help Restore, Protect, and Revitalize New York's Great Lakes Region

Public Comment Period Closes:  Nov. 11, 2022

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) released the draft New York's Great Lakes Action Agenda 2022-2030, a multi-year action plan to guide restoration and conservation, and foster sustainable, resilient, communities in New York's Great Lakes region. The Action Agenda advances a wide range of efforts to safeguard water quality, improve habitats for fish and wildlife, manage invasive species, promote sustainability, and enhance community resilience to climate change in a region that spans more than 40 percent of New York State's land area and includes Lake Erie, the Niagara River, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and respective watersheds.


In support of New York's ecosystem-based management goals, the Great Lakes Action Agenda (GLAA) promotes collaborative, science-informed decision-making to achieve outcomes that support the needs of people, nature, and the economy. The draft 2022-2030 GLAA includes new cross-cutting priorities that reflect the State's commitment to inclusion and engagement of diverse stakeholders and historically underserved communities. The updated GLAA also proposes new metrics for evaluating implementation progress and improvements in environmental conditions over time.

The GLAA is funded by the State's Environmental Protection Fund (EPF), under the Ocean and Great Lakes Ecosystem Conservation Act, and is administered through DEC's Great Lakes Program with collaborating stakeholders and partners. The EPF provides funding for critical environmental programs and projects such as land acquisition, farmland protection, invasive species prevention and eradication, enhanced recreational access, water quality improvement, climate change resilience, and environmental justice, to ensure all New Yorker's benefit from sustained ecosystem services, such as drinking water, swimming, and fishing.

The draft Action Agenda is available on DEC's website. Public comments will be accepted until Nov. 11, 2022, and submitted to greatlakes@dec.ny.gov. To learn more about these and future opportunities to engage in this work, please contact greatlakes@dec.ny.gov for additional details.

DEC designates several dates throughout the year as free fishing days, which allows anyone to recreationally fish without a fishing license in New York State! Friday, November 11, 2022 marks one of these designated dates as it aligns with Veteran's Day. This offers the perfect opportunity to try out fishing for the first time, for getting back into the sport after taking a break, or for taking a friend or the whole family along to fish -- be sure to take a veteran with you!

Even though a license is not needed, all fishing regulations apply. As a result, be sure to familiarize yourself with the Freshwater Fishing Regulations or Saltwater Fishing Regulations prior to venturing out.

Don't forget to download the HuntFishNY mobile app and use the new Tackle Box feature added this year! The Tackle Box offers information on places to fish, including finding boat launches and parking areas, as well as freshwater fishing regulations, likely fish species, and stocking information per waterbody.
