Planning workshop for Lake Ontario’s CSMI year 2021

Jim Watkins, Stacy Furgal, Lars Rudstam (funded by International Joint Commission).

We organized a planning workshop for the International Joint Commission to identify research priorities for Lake Ontario for the upcoming Cooperative Science and Monitoring Initiative year in Lake Ontario in 2023. Jim Watkins (CBFS) and Stacey Furgal from New York Sea Grant ran a virtual two-day workshop with breakout rooms organized along research themes. The workshop had over 100 participants, a number that we could not host at CBFS in person.  A document summarizing the discussion with recommendations for 2023 is available on line (Watkins et al. 2021).
