The virtual meeting on June 23 will disclose:
"Creel surveys and commercial bycatch results were topics that were routinely asked about during the development of the Lake Superior Fisheries Management Plan, and we felt that this was a good time to talk about the results of our recent surveys," said Brad Ray, DNR Lake Superior Fisheries Supervisor. "This meeting will also allow us to update the public on the surveys we use to monitor trout and salmon populations."
There will also be an opportunity during the meeting for participants to give input on any fisheries management topic they are interested in.
Due to the significant, community-wide impacts of the Lake Superior fishery, the DNR actively engages with diverse stakeholders to develop, implement, and evaluate management goals and activities as outlined in the Lake Superior Fisheries Management Plan. This plan was approved by the Natural Resources Board on May 27, 2020.
