Lake Superior Fisheries Workshop 2021

Thursday, April 8, 2021
6 - 8 p.m. EST

Location: Zoom 

This workshop - ONLINE this year - will offer current research and information related to the status of the Lake Superior fishery. Michigan Sea Grant will host partners from the Michigan DNR Fisheries Division, the Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's Sea Lamprey Control team, and others to provide local research of interest. At 7:15 p.m., directly after the programmed material, the Michigan DNR will host Conversations & Coffee to discuss regulation changes and updates to the Lake Superior Management Plan. We encourage you to attend the entirety of the workshop (beginning at 6 p.m.), but you may also join at 7:15 p.m. for the beginning of Conversations & Coffee using the same Zoom link that you receive upon registering for the workshop.”

Due to novel coronavirus and social distancing guidelines we are hosting a variation of this year's workshops in a virtual, online format using a platform called Zoom.
