Lake Superior Fishery Management
The largest collection of freshwater in the world encircled by more than 2,700 miles of shoreline, Lake Superior is a treasured resource for the hundreds of thousands who live along its coast. The health of the lake’s diverse fishery is a paramount concern for tribal, municipal and national governments in both Canada and the United States.
Representing eleven member tribes in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, the Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission (GLIFWC) conducts ongoing assessments of fish and sea lamprey populations in cooperation with other natural resource management agencies. Grant funds supplied by the Administration for Native Americans (ANA) greatly enhance GLIFWC’s ability to better understand the fishery. http://www.glifwc.org/publications/pdf/LakeSuperior_Supplement.pdf

What's lurking in our waters?
Preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) is a responsibility that must be shared across the board in order to stem the flow of exotic species and to keep those that have already established residence from further spreading in our valued water bodies. As the numbers of invasive species grow, so does the impact on lakes, streams and wetlands and the native species who live in those habitats. The impacts on humans vary from a nuisance status to potentially life-threatening status, and most certainly present a significant economic impact in terms of spoiled lakes and the dollars needed to keep the invaders in check. Because the problem continues to grow and requires the cooperation of all individuals, GLIFWC is providing this supplement in an effort to inform people of the problem and what they personally can do to help stem the tide of aquatic invasive species. http://www.glifwc.org/publications/pdf/AIS_Supplement.pdf
