The article discusses changes occurring in fishery on Lake Ontario that is bounded on the north and south by the Canadian province and New York, respectively, as of 2009. Among the cited changes are a drop in the number of anglers fishing the open lake and better wastewater treatment which improved water quality. Scientists examining the lake raised their concern over its declining productivity. It says the declining number of anglers may be attributable to children who are not getting outdoors to enjoy nature like they used to.
