Fishery resources include the fishes, the other biota they interact with, and the habitats they occupy. The historical sequences in the use and management of these resources may be considered as a series of interacting sequences of change. These sequences can span from social, economic, institutional and landscape changes, through water quality, habitat supply, and climate changes, to biotic composition changes, introductions and extinctions, and species harvest changes. A selection of these sequences is examined for the St. Lawrence-Great Lakes which has been subjected to intense development and study over the last 200 years. While the whole basin is considered, some detailed attention is given to Lake Ontario and, within it, the Bay of Quinte. Brief selective development histories are given for the three areas as context. The management history is outlined and critiqued. While much progress has been achieved in cleaning up the load-driven problems in the basin, little secure progr...

The Great Lakes Fishery Commission, recognizing the importance of social impacts on Great Lakes fisheries and the shortage of information on “human dimensions,” launched a new research theme. It seeks to fill knowledge gaps in the areas of legal and institutional frameworks governing fisheries, constructing effective processes that better inform management decision making, and the role and impact of stakeholder

Even with long‐standing management and extensive science support, North American inland fish and fisheries still face many conservation and management challenges. We used a grand challenges approach to identify critical roadblocks that if removed would help solve important problems in the management and long‐term conservation of North American inland fish and fisheries. We identified seven grand challenges within three themes (valuation, governance, and externalities) and 34 research needs and management actions. The major themes identified are to (1) raise awareness of diverse values associated with inland fish and fisheries, (2) govern inland fish and fisheries to satisfy multiple use and conservation objectives, and (3) ensure productive inland fisheries given nonfishing sector externalities. Addressing these grand challenges will help the broader community understand the diverse values of inland fish and fisheries, promote open forums for engagement of diverse stakeholders in fi...

Primer   •  Table of Information

Tri-commission collaboration.

Since 2014, staff from the three binational commissions of the Great Lakes region — the Great Lakes Commisssion, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, and the International Joint Commission — have met regularly to identify, discuss, coordinate and take action on issues of mutual interest, to the extent possible.  The Three Commissions also hold regular calls with the U.S. and Canadian Co-Chairs of the Annex 2 (Lakewide Management) Subcommittee, who under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement are responsible for the development of Lakewide Action and Management Plans (LAMPs) for each of the Great Lakes.

Great Lakes Commission

joint strategic plan for management of great lakes fisheries

The Great Lakes Commission was established by the Great Lakes Basin Compact in 1955 “to promote the orderly, integrated and comprehensive development, use, and conservation of the water resources of the Great Lakes Basin.” Passage of P.L. 90-419 by the United States Congress in 1968 provided consent of the Great Lakes Basin Compact. Between 1955 and 1963 each of the eight Great Lakes states passed its own enabling legislation that determines its delegation makeup and participation in the Great Lakes Commission under the terms of the Great Lakes Basin Compact.

The Great Lakes Commission’s authority under the Compact includes providing advice and recommendations to governments at all levels on development, use, management and protection of the lakes. Services focus on communication and education, information integration and reporting, facilitation and consensus building, and policy coordination and advocacy.

Great Lakes Fishery Commission

joint strategic plan for management of great lakes fisheries

The GLFC is made up of eight Commissioners (four appointed from each of the United States and Canada; the US also appoints an alternate commissioner).  GLFC work is supported by an institutional structure that includes the Board of Technical Experts and the Sea Lamprey Research Board to advise on science; the Sea Lamprey Control Board, and committees of citizen advisors. To maintain working arrangements, the GLFC facilitates the implementation of “A Joint Strategic Plan for Management of Great Lakes Fisheries,” a multi-jurisdictional agreement among the basin’s fishery management agencies. Through the Joint Strategic Plan, the members work together to develop and implement shared fishery objectives and to harmonize their policies. The process occurs through several Joint Strategic Plan committees including a “lake committee” for each lake, technical committees, a basinwide Council of Lake Committees, the Law Enforcement Committee, and the Great Lakes Fish Health Committee.

International Joint Commission

joint strategic plan for management of great lakes fisheries

Under the U.S.-Canada Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA, first signed in 1972 and most recently amended in 2012), the governments gave the IJC additional responsibilities to assist them in restoring Great Lakes water quality. As an independent, binational organization, the main roles of the IJC with respect to the GLWQA are to provide advice to governments, assess progress, identify emerging issues, and provide public outreach and education on Great Lakes water quality. In the GLWQA, the governments directed the IJC to establish a Great Lakes Regional Office, a Great Lakes Water Quality Board and a Great Lakes Science Advisory Board to assist the IJC in carrying out its Great Lakes water quality responsibilities. The IJC’s Health Professionals Advisory Board also contributes to the IJC’s Great Lakes work.  Each of the Boards has members from both countries.
