Michigan Sea Grant invites you to attend the annual Ludington Regional Fishery Workshop to be held on Saturday, January 5, 2008. Topics presented will cover current research on issues that affect Lake Michigan fisheries.
Topics to be covered include: Lake Michigan Currents, an Update on Little River Fisheries, the Impact of Natural Reproduction on Salmonine Fisheries in Lake Michigan, Regional Issues Affecting the Lake Michigan Fisheries, Coast Guard policies for Charter Boats, the Status of Bloody Red Shrimp and Opossum Shrimp in Lake Michigan, and Asian Carp in the Great Lakes.
Several of the speakers are very familiar with local issues.
The Ludington Area Charterboat Association will hold its annual meeting in conjunction with the workshop. They also hold a raffle to help fund salmon stocking in the Big Sable River.
If you find salmon fascinating, or want to hear about Lake Michigan shrimp, Asian Carp, or perhaps how DNR funding may affect anglers, then this is the day for you. The Sea Grant program of Michigan State University Extension offers the annual workshop. The fee of $20 also covers lunch. Pre-register by December 28; the form is linked below.
