The St. Lawrence County Industrial Development Agency voted unanimously to support the North Country's FishCap project, a public-private economic development initiative which focuses on revitalization of the sport fishing industry as a tool for growing the economy.

The IDA's mission is to promote, encourage, attract and develop job opportunities and economically sound commerce and industry in St. Lawrence County.  The IDA's mission dovetails that of the Chamber, which is to create a vibrant business climate that encourages growth and enhances the unique quality of life in St. Lawrence county.
