About the Workshops

The annual Great Lakes Fisheries Workshops bring communities together with fisheries research and management partners to discuss research findings, management updates and fishing trends. Fisheries and natural resource managers provide big picture context to what’s happening in the lakes and how it will affect fish populations for recreational, commercial and sustenance fishers.
