2010 Sea Lamprey Control Petition is Available on-line

A petition addressed to the Governor of Vermont, Agency of Natural Resources Secretary, and Vermont Commissioners of the Department of Environmental Conservation, Department of Health and Department of Fish and Wildlife is available on line.

The petition is available to read and sign at http://www.petitiononline.com/Lewis010/petition.html

This is the forth year the petition has been written and presented to Montpelier in an effort to continue the necessary control of Sea Lamprey in Lake Champlain.

I would take great pleasure in knowing my readers took the time to read and sign this valuable tool to benefit the Lake Champlain Fishery.

Above, is a large 16" Sea Lamprey caught while fishing in Lake Champlain aboard the "Digitroll".

This photo shows a large Sea Lamprey attached to a Lake Champlain Brown Trout with another older scar visible on the fish.  This photo was taken while aboard the UVM research vessel Melosira.

More information on the control of Sea Lamprey on Lake Champlain can be found here on the New York DEC website.

Again, PLEASE take a minute to read and sign the petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/Lewis010/petition.html

Thank you!

Fish on, fish H8 me.
