This is the Duluth Audubon Society May Program, presented by Paul J. Radomski, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Scientist.
Lead is a serious poison. Yet there seems to be a very limited public understanding on the link between lead use in fishing tackle and the environmental and human health consequences.
Paul J. Radomski will begin by outlining the challenges with the loss, use, and manufacturing of lead fishing tackle. Large economic barriers exist for lead substitution in the fishing tackle industry. Paul will end with a review of the opportunities that exist to reduce lead fishing tackle use in Minnesota.
Paul is a scientist with Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and co-author of the recently released book Lakeshore Living. He has worked for over 25 years on shoreland development management issues and has published extensively on ecological and conservation matters. Paul currently serves as Minnesota’s lead scientific expert on lakeshore habitat management issues.
