Managing Michigan's Fisheries

  • What happens to surplus salmon after fall egg-take efforts?
  • Michigan's 2018 survey efforts to hit a ton of waterbodies
  • Fisheries biologists, technicians and management teams are constantly working to make decisions on how best to manage Michigan's fisheries. Making scientific, research-based decisions on rearing and stocking fish, regulations for fishing the Great Lakes, inland lakes and streams, and how to manage invasive species are just some of the key elements of what our Fisheries staff are doing a daily basis.

    Their hard work results in a flourishing fishing industry that enables you to enjoy all that Michigan's waters have to offer.
