FISHERIES MANAGEMENT TOPIC OF NEXT MARITIME SPEAKER SERIES PROGRAM
Sturgeon Bay—The Door County Maritime Museum’s Maritime Speaker Series continues Thursday evening, Feb. 6, with a presentation by Mark Holey, Project Leader for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service office in Green Bay.
“The Department of the Interior is the principle conservation agency of the United States government and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office delivers the federal fisheries in the Great Lakes,” explains Holey, who has held his position at the Fish and Wildlife Service office in Green Bay for the past 21 years.
Topics of Holey’s presentation include the effort to restore lake trout, lake sturgeon, deep water ciscoes and implementation of mass marking of trout and salmon in Lake Michigan and Great Lakes.
“Specific restoration tools include sea lamprey control, propagating hatchery fish for stocking, fish passage over dams and fisheries management,” said Holey, a former station supervisor of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Sturgeon Bay Field Office. He also spent five years as a fish biologist in Milwaukee.
As is the practice for every Speaker Series program, time will be set aside for questions at the end of Holey’s presentation.
The Maritime Speaker Series is featured each winter at the Door County Maritime Museum on the first Thursday of the month from December through March. The 2014 series concludes on March 6 when Lieutenant Commander John Kaser, Supervisor of the United Sates Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment Sturgeon Bay, will present a program on the duties and responsibilities of his Sturgeon Bay-based office.
All programs begin at 7 pm in the Reddin Bridge Room at the Sturgeon Bay museum and are free and open to the public. Call 9920) 743-5958 or visit www.dcmm.org for more information.
