Submitted by on April 16, 2010 – 6:07 amNo Comment

A number of workshops are being held this month to talk about the status of the Lake Huron fishery.

Two of the meetings are being held in northeast lower Michigan, in Alpena and Tawas City. The workshops are open to the public, and will provide valuable information for anglers, charter captains, resource professionals and others. 

Some of the topics include updates related to salmon management in Lake Huron, forage fish surveys and results from the recent Lake Huron predator diet study.

The Alpena workshop is being held Monday from 6:30 – 9 p.m. at the NOAA Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center.  The Tawas workshop is being held on Wednesday, April 28, from 6:30 – 9 p.m. at the Day’s Inn of Tawas.

Michigan Sea Grant and Michigan State University Extension, in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment Fisheries Division, USGS Great Lakes Science Center, and local fishery organizations are hosting the workshops.
