The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has announced a virtual session for March 28, aiming to discuss the future management of Adirondack brook trout. This meeting is part of the DEC’s effort to develop a new 15-year plan for managing these fish, which are a vital part of the state’s ecosystem and a favorite among anglers.

Following successful in-person sessions, the DEC has decided to host this additional online meeting to accommodate the interest shown by people across the state. The session, running from 6:30 to 9 p.m., will allow participants to learn about the proposed management plan, ask questions, and give their feedback. Registration is required to join the webinar.

The initiative underscores the importance of brook trout in New York, symbolizing not just the natural beauty of the Adirondacks but also the region’s commitment to preserving its water quality and biodiversity. Public input from the virtual meeting will be crucial in shaping the management plan, ensuring the sustainability of brook trout populations for years to come.
