You Are Invited to an Asian Carp Public Forum
November 8, 2012 in Toronto
As our members and supporters know, an Asian Carp invasion to the Great Lakes is a threat to both the United States and Canada.
The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Cities Initiative, and the Canada-Ontario Invasive Species Centre will co-host an Asian Carp Public Forum from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on November 8, 2012 at the Palais Royale in Toronto, Ontario. The forum addresses ongoing public concerns in Canada about the potential impacts of Asian carp if they were to establish themselves in the Great Lakes. The public, organizations, and media are invited to this event to hear from a wide range of U.S. and Canadian agencies about actions being taken to reduce these threats.
Nearly two dozen expert speakers will be presenting on everything from Chicago area control strategies to stopping carp at the border. Speakers include representatives from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Department of Fisheries of Oceans Canada, U.S. Council on Environmental Quality, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission and many more. Look for Great Lakes United's own Jennifer Nalbone on the non-government organization panel!
