Fisheries Workshops

Spring fishery workshops offer current research and information related to the status of the Lake Huron and Lake Michigan 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 host 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 native Lake Trout, status of Yellow Perch and Walleye, as well as updates on fisheries management activities, citizen science opportunities for anglers, and a variety of other Lake Huron and Lake Michigan topics of local interest.
