LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – As the fish farm industry pressures the state to allow it to expand into the Great Lakes the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is hosting a series of free public workshops in Lansing to explain how fish populations are managed in the mitten.

The series will focus on Lakes Erie, Michigan, Huron and St. Clair as well as the Detroit River.

Experts from the DNR will talk about fish populations, data from anglers, invasive species and what the department is doing to keep those lakes healthy.

The first workshop is Thursday, April 14th.

If you’re interested you’ll need to pre-register.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
