8:30 am - 5:00 pm

University of Wisconsin - Parkside

Kenosha, Wisconsin

 

Fishing on Lake Michigan for salmon has been great, but there is cause for concern that Lake Michigan predators and their forage may be trending toward imbalance in the near future.  Growth rates of Chinook salmon have declined over the past several years and forage abundance is down.  Community dynamics in Lake Huron have shifted drastically and could impact Lake Michiganís balance.  The Lake Michigan management agencies are considering reduced stocking to meet ecosystem objectives, and would like to know the opinions of the interested public.  This conference will provide a scientific review of the status of the predator and prey communities, and present options for future stocking designed to meet prescribed objectives.  Your input into the decision making process is important!
