PULASKI — The state Department of Environmental Conservation will host a meeting on the state of Lake Ontario fisheries from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday at the DEC Training Academy, 24 County Route 2A.

The regional meeting, part of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s NY Open for Fishing and Hunting Initiative, will include scientists who study Lake Ontario fisheries. The lake supports trout, salmon, bass, walleye, yellow perch and panfish. A 2007 angler survey estimated more than 2.6 million angler days were spent on Lake Ontario and its major tributaries that year. The study found the economic value of fisheries exceeds $112 million annually in New York state.

The meeting will be co-hosted by the Eastern Ontario Salmon and Trout Association. For more information, visit the DEC’s website at www.dec.ny.gov/press/95585.html.
