The Perfect Envionmental Storm: 300 Year History of the Great Lakes 11 am.

Presentation given by Dave "Rocky" Rockwell.

The developement of the commercial fishery in the early 18th Century and a number of environmental insults resulted in the extirpation of Landlocks from the lake and all of its tributaries by 1898, a mere 97 years. 

Although at some level we are all aware of the "perfect environmental storm" that almost killed the Great lakes, the history of a century & a half of neglect and abuse is an extremely disturbing story.
