Attention Fishermen

Apr 9, 2013

The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (SRMT) St. Lawrence River AOC (Area of Concern) program is asking community members to submit fish showing signs of external anomalies (tumors, lesions, ulcers, etc…) to the division for analysis. These fish samples will be used to determine if fish tumors are a significant impairment to the beneficial use of the waters of the St. Lawrence River AOC at Massena/Akwesasne.

To submit a fish, please keep in a live well or on ice – do not freeze, until fish can be delivered to the Environment Division, 449 Frogtown Road, Akwesasne.

For more information, visit our website: or contact Mary LaFrance and Matthew Thompson at the Environment Division at (518) 358-5937. Niá:wen
