Fisheries Workshops

Spring fishery workshops offer current research and information related to the status of the Great Lakes fishery.

Michigan Sea Grant and Michigan State University Extension, in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Division, USGS Great Lakes Science Center, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and local fishery organizations annually offer evening regional workshops to provide valuable information for anglers, charter captains, resource professionals, and interested community members.

Workshops include information and status updates on topics such as fish populations and angler catch data, forage or prey fish surveys, offshore fisheries and open water fisheries, as well as updates on fisheries management activities, citizen science opportunities for anglers, and a variety of other topics of interest based on specific regions.

Michigan Sea Grant is also assisting the Michigan Department of Natural Resources in providing several of their annual Conversations and Coffee meetings virtually. Registration links for those sessions are at the bottom of this page or via the DNR Conversations & Coffee webpage.
