Perch Fishing Lake Erie Reports

The Lake Erie Committee consists of senior staff members from the Michigan, New York, Ohio, Ontario, and Pennsylvania agencies administering their respective fisheries. The Committee's purposes are to:

  • consider issues pertinent to, or referred by, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission;
  • consider issues and problems of common concern to member agencies;
  • develop and coordinate joint programs and research projects; and
  • serve as a forum for state, provincial, tribal, and federal agencies.

For deliberations of this committee, Lake Erie shall be considered to include all of Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair, the St. Clair River, the Detroit River, and the Niagara River downstream to Niagara Falls and, to the extent that they affect fish stocks of common concern, its bays, harbors, and tributaries. Decisions will be reached by consensus of the membership. When consensus cannot be achieved, the consensus of all agencies shall be described in the Committee's report to the Commission.
