Abstract
On February 14-15, 2006, Pennsylvania Sea Grant, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Great Lakes National Program Office (GLNPO) co-sponsored the Development of Standardized Criteria for the Assessment of Brown Bullhead Lesions and Deformities in Areas of Concern Conference, held at the Stull Interpretive Center on Presque Isle State Park in Erie, Pennsylvania. This conference was a continuation of the previous Fish Tumors Related to Great Lakes Areas of Concern (AOC) conferences. However, participants at this conference specifically intended to develop reference rates and determine appropriate delisting targets for Lake Erie AOCs. The goal of the conference was to discuss and finalize standardized protocols for assessing liver and external lesions on brown bullhead, evaluate reference lesion rate data for Lake Erie, and review proposed delisting targets for the Presque Isle Bay AOC.
