A report highlighting the various activities of the Department of Natural Resources, Fisheries Division during 2012 has been produced and is now available online at www.michigan.gov/fishing.

The 2012 Fisheries Division Annual Report summarizes the programs and work completed in the past calendar year by division staff in an effort to maintain and improve Michigan’s fishery. The report categorizes the division’s work into multiple sections, including fish and fish communities, habitat, people and partnerships.

The fish and fish communities section explains activities related to assessing and evaluating the health of Michigan’s lakes, streams and fish hatchery systems; the habitat section describes activities related to protecting and rehabilitating aquatic habitat; the people section explains activities related to educating and reaching out to the public and regulations; and the partnerships section describes specific efforts to work with individuals and organizations interested in the fishery.

“This report offers Michigan citizens an overview of Fisheries Division’s management of the state’s fishing resources,” said Fisheries Division Chief Jim Dexter. “It also highlights why our fisheries are considered some of the best in the country.”

Input on the activities of Fisheries Division is encouraged by readers of the 2012 annual report. All communication can be shared by email through DNR-Fish-Accomplishments@michigan.gov.
