You are invited to join and participate this spring in the upcoming 2013 Lake Huron Regional Fisheries Workshops offering current research and information related to the status of our Lake Huron fishery.
The Michigan Sea Grant and Michigan State University Extension, in partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Division, the USGS Great Lakes Science Center and local fishery organizations will host three regional workshops locally along Lake Huron’s coastline. Topics will include information and updates regarding fish populations and angler catch data, native species such as Lake Huron walleye, forage fish surveys and results from the Lake Huron predator diet study, low water levels on Lake Huron, updates of fisheries management activities, among other Lake Huron related topics of local interest.
Three evening workshops, hosted across the state, are open to the public and will offer valuable information for anglers, charter captains, resource professionals and other community members interested in the Lake Huron fishery.
