Ohio Sea Grant will host Legislative Days on Lake Erie today and Friday to give elected officials an opportunity to learn about issues affecting the Great Lakes and Ohio State University's research to solve them.

Officials will take a trip on one of Ohio Sea Grant’s research vessels to pull a fish trawl and discover what lives under the surface. They also will have the chance to speak with scientists and Ohio Sea Grant staff and learn about issues facing Lake Erie, including Asian carp, algal blooms and the economic contributions of fishing, birding and tourism.

“This event provides legislators a chance to see for themselves the importance Lake Erie holds to Ohio and the need for continuing research, protection and sensible development,” Melinda Huntley, Ohio Sea Grant sustainable tourism program director, said in a statement. “It puts them among the opportunities, the problems and the needs of the lake's resources and the people whose lives are tied to Lake Erie.”

The university’s Ohio Sea Grant program is part of NOAA Sea Grant, a network of 32 Sea Grant programs dedicated to the protection and sustainable use of marine and Great Lakes resources.
