Written comments may be submitted to the Department of Natural
Resources, Fisheries Division, PO Box 30446, Lansing, MI 48909,
Attention: Steve Sutton, or by e-mail to SUTTONSL@michigan.gov.   The

above or in person from the County Clerk's office in those counties

Following the public comment period, both draft Management Plans and
