Supplying this link because of both its economic impact the impact this will have on stocking programs and wild fish throughout the Great Lakes Basin. There is now a ban a certain fish being transported between states by the USDA.

Anyone with any information would be appreciated if you would post it.

Not good. Going to be a bad affect.

The DEC continues to investigate what caused the death of numerous birds found along the shore of Lake Ontario. The agency says birds like gulls and loons were found dead along the eastern shore of the lake Saturday.
Botulism. Water birds which have the botulism toxin cannot fly and their legs become paralyzed. DEC officials are advising the public to take precautions in handling birds and other wildlife from these areas until the investigation is completed.

How should I prepare HEALTHY fish or game that I harvest? (In Erie or Ontario)
Wear rubber or plastic protective gloves while filleting, field dressing, skinning or butchering.
Remove intestines soon after harvest, don't eat intestines and avoid direct contact with intestinal contents.

This is important to my because I fish for Steel head most all winter long. I posted this on (Fish Erie Forum)because those guys eat thees fish. So far this year Ive caught way over 300 Steel head and haven't keep a single fish to smoke.

Seasons Greetings

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cocks wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Thanks JAD. The USDA banned the interstate transportation of some fish to contain the Great Lakes problem. That's as far as I got with the time I have. Keep me posted.
