Health of St. Lawrence River Fish and the Great River Rapport

Leigh McGaughey

Research scientist Leigh McGaughey from the St. Lawrence Institute for Environmental Science is our guest today on Blue Fish Radio. Two years ago we first heard from Leighwhen she launched the Great River Rapport initiative with the goal of collecting data and local knowledge about the health of the St. Lawrence River. Leigh is joining us again to let us know how the project is unfolding, and the crucial roles anglers, indigenous fishers, conservationists and scientists have in creating this remarkably comprehensive collection of historic and current data and knowledge.
