MADISON, Wis. – Later this month, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host a fourth virtual meeting to hear from anyone interested in Lake Michigan whitefish.

This virtual meeting will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. Members of the public can access the meeting beginning at 5:45 p.m. via Zoom or by calling 1-301-715-8592 with meeting ID 881 4642 4587

DNR fisheries managers will be developing new regulations for lake whitefish for the commercial industry and would like stakeholder participation from a wide variety of sources. This will be the fourth of several public meetings over the next year to get feedback on the Lake Michigan whitefish fishery.

At this meeting, lake whitefish quota numbers for Green Bay and Lake Michigan will be discussed.

Fisheries staff will share information using a PowerPoint presentation during this meeting. The call-in number will allow attendees to listen to the discussion. However, to better understand the information and see the presentation, the DNR recommends the public attend using a computer via the Zoom link.

Information, meeting notes and presentations from previous meetings on Lake Michigan Whitefish Management can be found on the DNR’s fisheries webpage.
