Mr. Edwards, as far as I'm concerned, those photos were/are public domain as I received them by email which is public domain. The pictures as stated were taken by one/first party as stated in the caption above, and forwarded to another party then ended to me, making me a third party to which I posted on the Outdoors Niagara website in an ongoing effort of promoting fishing in our Western New York area waters.
EDWARDS, I WOULD SUGGEST YOU GO TO YOUR LAWYER AND ASK HIM, GET ONE OF THOSE FREE LAWYERS THAT WILL GIVE YOU YOUR FIRST VISITATION FOR NOTHING.
You can take this as my response, This page should have been taken down years ago because it is what we call a 'dead' page with very little activity for 5 years, since May of 2009, and only 1,449 clicks. [see counter in lower left hand corner]
Report Sturgeon Sightings –
Helen Domske, Associate Director for the New York Sea Grant Great Lakes program at the University of Buffalo – and a coordinator for this State of Lake Erie meeting for 15 years – concluded the evening by emphasizing the importance that the angling community can have in monitoring sturgeon in the Great Lakes. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has only a small amount of time to devote to field studies for lake sturgeon and anglers can be the eyes for them to observe fish spawning or other important activities. If you are out fishing and observe or catch a lake sturgeon, you are asked to consider collecting the following information: location (GPS coordinates, nearest town, etc.); date and time of sighting; activity being performed (fishing, diving, etc.); number of sturgeon; alive or dead; length; body condition; any tags or markings; and, take a photo of the fish if possible. If you have any questions or would like to pass this information along, you can do so by contacting the Lower Great Lakes Fishery Resources Office at 716-691-5456.
