MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will host a second virtual meeting later this month to hear from anyone interested in Lake Michigan whitefish.

This virtual meeting will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 22, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Members of the public can access the meeting beginning at 5:45 p.m. via Zoom or by calling 312-626-6799 and using meeting ID: 961 9714 5544.

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 is the second of several public meetings over the course of the next year to get feedback on the Lake Michigan whitefish.

At this meeting fisheries staff share information using a PowerPoint presentation. While the call-in number will allow attendees to listen to the discussion, 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 for the first meeting can be found on Lake Michigan Whitefish Management page.

More information on fisheries can be found on the fisheries page of the DNR website.
