Lake Champlain Fisheries Technical Committee
The Lake Champlain Fisheries Technical Committee is a component of the Lake Champlain Fish and Wildlife Management Cooperative. The Cooperative was estabalished to faciliate communication and management decisions about the fish and wildlife resources of Lake Champlain among the States of New York and Vermont, The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources. University faculty and other government officials with interest in the lake's fisheries also participate in the meetings.
The meetings of the Lake Champlain Fisheries Technical Committee are not open public forums; however, they are open to public attendance. Persons who attend are invited to observe. Because the routinely-scheduled Fishery Technical Committee meetings are intended to provide an important opportunity for Federal and State agency biologists to coordinate and plan technical functions of the Lake Champlain Fish and Wildlife Management Cooperative we ask that observers refrain from engaging in the discussion or offering comments during the meeting. However, any written correspondence to the Chair will be provided to the Committee members. Notifications of meeting dates, times, and locations can be obtained from Bradley Young by requesting your name be added to an email list. Meeting minutes will be posted on this page once they are approved by the Fisheries Technical Committee. Standard practice is to approve the minutes from each meeting at the following meeting, usually 2 to 3 months later.
