The status and future of Lake Huron's fishery are the topics of a series of workshops being conducted in April by Michigan Sea Grant ...
in cooperation with the Michigan State University Extension Service and the Department of Natural Resources.
Two, day-long workshops will provide in-depth analysis of some of the major fisheries and food web concerns in Lake Huron, while a series of evening meetings will serve as a shorter version of the daytime workshops.
One of the workshops will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 30, at the Oscoda Yacht Club, located at 430 S. State Street in Oscoda.
"The Lake Huron fishery has undergone marked changes in recent years," said Dave Borgeson, Northern Lake Huron unit supervisor for the DNR's Fisheries Division. "The invasion of exotic aquatic species and the near absence of the Chinook salmon's preferred prey, the alewife, have greatly altered the lake's food web.
"These workshops and meetings give all stakeholders a chance to sit down and discuss these changes and the future of the lake's fishery."
The day-long workshops will feature the latest research and information related to the changing Lake Huron fishery.
The other day-long workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16, at the Franklin Inn Motor Lodge, located at 1060 E. Huron Avenue in Bad Axe.
