Do you like to fish on Lake Superior and want to know what others are catching on the lake? Do you want to hear how industrial pollutants from long ago are impacting fish habitat today? Are you looking to tour a world class research facility? The Lake Superior Fisheries Workshop on April 30, 2018, will offer answers to these questions and more.
Michigan Sea Grant workshops are intended to inform the angling community and general public about fish populations and management. This year, in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), our Lake Superior Fisheries Workshop will be held at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Mich. The workshop will feature a variety of talks from the university and management agencies of the MDNR and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. The talks will help anglers and the general public understand what research is taking place on the lake and how it is informing fisheries management decisions. There will also be plenty of time for questions and answers allowing anglers to give valuable input.
