SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Advocates for a National Marine Sanctuary in the southeastern waters of Lake Ontario plan to announce the details of their proposal.

State, county and federal officials are expected to discuss their proposal Friday at the New York State Fair in Syracuse.

Proponents of a marine sanctuary say they want to promote and protect the waters of Lake Ontario without interfering with current commercial and recreational activities.

There currently are 13 national marine sanctuaries around the country.
