Lake Champlain Anglers and Other Friends of the Lake,
Please consider signing the petition to the Governor of Vermont, at the link below, to ensure the continuation of the successful Lake Champlain sea lamprey control program in 2010.
Your participation in the petitions of the past three years has been effective in reminding officials of the importance of this program to our environment and our economy. Both the Atlantic salmon and lake trout populations have shown marked improvement in recent years with salmon over 9 pounds being caught, and the largest lake trout in the documented history of Lake Champlain, nearly 16 pounds, being caught during the LCI Father’s Day Derby this past June. Experts believe 20-pound lake trout and 10-pound salmon are a very real possibility.
Thank you for your concern and support. Your forwarding of this petition to friends and others concerned about the health and future of Lake Champlain would be most appreciated.
All the best,
Lake Champlain International, Inc.
