Penn Dixie is pleased to have Don Einhouse of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in Dunkirk, leader of the Lake Erie Fisheries Research Unit, speak on the “Great Lakes Fisheries: Past, Present and Future” on Wednesday, March 20 at 7 p.m. Einhouse’s illustrated presentation will be in the auditorium of the Gateway Executive office, 3556 Lake Shore Road.
The Lake Erie Fisheries Research Unit operates from a field station located in Dunkirk and has the principal function to investigate and manage the fish resources within Lake Erie. This includes evaluating the status of fish populations to enhance fisheries and to restore others. The field station also undertakes regular surveys to monitor the health of fish populations and to establish effective stocking and harvest policies. Einhouse has been a fisheries biologist at the Lake Erie field station for most of his 30 year career. He received degrees from SUNY Cobleskill, Cornell University and SUNY Fredonia and has spent most of his career investigating the dynamics of walleye, smallmouth bass and yellow perch fisheries on Lake Erie. His presentation will provide a broad overview of New York’s Great Lakes fisheries resources.
Einhouse’s presentation is open to the public and no pre-registration is required. Children, adults, scouts students, families, home schools, and groups are welcome. The cost is $4 person, with Penn Dixie members admitted for free. Call 627-4560 for information and directions.
