Sec. 941. Findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress finds and declares the following:

(1) As the human population of the Great Lakes Basin has

expanded to over 35,000,000 people, great demands have been

placed on the lakes for use for boating and other recreation,

navigation, municipal and industrial water supply, waste

disposal, power production, and other purposes. These growing

and often conflicting demands exert pressure on the fish and

wildlife resources of the Great Lakes Basin, including in the

form of contaminants, invasion by nonindigenous species, habitat

degradation and destruction, legal and illegal fishery resource

harvest levels, and sea lamprey predation.

(2) The fishery resources of the Great Lakes support

recreational fisheries enjoyed by more than 5,000,000 people

annually and commercial fisheries providing approximately 9,000

jobs. Together, these fisheries generate economic activity worth

more than $4,400,000,000 annually to the United States.

(3) The availability of a suitable forage base is essential to

lake trout, walleye, yellow perch, and other recreational and

commercially valuable fishery resources of the Great Lakes Basin.

Protecting and restoring productive fish habitat, including by

protecting water quality, is essential to the successful recovery

of Great Lakes Basin fishery resources.

(4) The Great Lakes Basin contains important breeding and

migration habitat for all types of migratory birds. Many

migratory bird species dependent on deteriorating Great Lakes

Basin habitat have suffered serious population declines in recent

years.

(5) Over 80 percent of the original wetlands in the Great Lakes

Basin have been destroyed and such losses continue at a rate of

20,000 acres annually.

(6) Contaminant burdens in the fish and wildlife resources of

the Great Lakes Basin are substantial and the impacts of those

contaminants on the life functions of important fish and wildlife

resources are poorly understood. Concern over the effects of

those contaminants on human health have resulted in numerous

public health advisories recommending restricted or no

consumption of Great Lakes fish.

(7) The lower Great Lakes are uniquely different from the upper

Great Lakes biologically, physically, and in the degree of human

use and shoreline development, and special fishery resource

assessments and management activities are necessary to respond

effectively to these special circumstances.

that: ''Congress finds that -

''(1) the Great Lakes Fishery Resources Restoration Study, for

which a report was submitted to Congress in 1995, was a

comprehensive study of the status, and the assessment,

management, and restoration needs, of the fishery resources of

the Great Lakes Basin, and was conducted through the joint effort

of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, State fish and

wildlife resource management agencies, Indian tribes, and the

Great Lakes Fishery Commission; and

''(2) the study -

''(A) found that, although State, Provincial, Native American

Tribal, and Federal agencies have made significant progress

toward the goal of restoring a healthy fish community to the

Great Lakes Basin, additional actions and better coordination

are needed to protect and effectively manage the fisheries and

related resources in the Great Lakes Basin; and

''(B) recommended actions that are not currently funded but

are considered essential to meet goals and objectives in

managing the resources of the Great Lakes Basin.''
