Please join me in congratulating Ed Sander who has been chosen as one of
NOAA's Environmental Heroes of 2002.

New York native Edmund Sander, a graduate of Rochester Institute of
Technology and retired manager for the Xerox Corporation, is passionate
about Lake Ontario and its fisheries. As an advisor to the United States
Section of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission since 1998 and Chair of New
York Sea Grant's Program Advisory Council since 1999, Ed is proactive about
Great Lakes research and fisheries management issues.

An avid member of the Rochester Trout and Salmon Anglers since the late 80s,
Ed went from being solely a recreational fisherman to someone deeply
committed to the fishery and its management. As president of that
association in the early 90s, Ed did much to support conservation efforts by
fostering stream and hatchery improvements. Since 1992, he's been on the
Monroe County Fishery Advisory Board. As chair (since 1996), Ed's provided
valuable leadership and guidance to the county on all fisheries-related
businesses. He's been delegate to the New York State Department of
Environmental Conservation Fishing Congress and currently is a
representative for Monroe County to the Lake Ontario Sportfishing Promotion
Council.

Heartfelt congratulations to you, Ed. The honor is well-deserved.
