Lake Huron Regional Fisheries Workshops
Set for April in Alpena and Sandusky

The Department of Natural Resources will participate in two April workshops planned to examine the fishery in Lake Huron, which has undergone significant ecological changes in the last several years. The workshops have been organized by the Michigan Sea Grant College Program and the Michigan State University Extension Service. 

"These workshops will offer recent research and information related to the status of the Lake Huron fishery, including specific updates on salmon management, walleye in the Saginaw Bay area and cormorant management," said DNR Lake Huron Basin Coordinator Tammy Newcomb. "I encourage anglers, charter captains, natural resource professionals and others interested in the status of the lake to attend one of these sessions."

The first session will be held on Saturday, April 8, at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles (FOE) meeting hall located at 1960 M-32 West in Alpena. The all day session starts at 9 a.m. Advance registration ends on March 31 and costs $15. Registration also is available at the door for $20. 

The second session will be held on Saturday, April 22, at the Westpark Inn located at 440 W. Sanilac Road in Sandusky. Advance registration for this session ends on April 14. 

More information, including registration forms, the agenda and directions to each workshop, is available on the Michigan Sea Grant Web site at www.miseagrant.umich.edu/fisheries/. 

The DNR is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural resources for current and future generations.
