The Great Lakes Fisheries Commission says Lake Michigan and other Great Lakes communities need to remain vigilant against the spread of Asian carp. Residents in Door and Kewaunee counties can learn more about the fight against the invasive fish. Dr. John Dettmer, Director of Fishery Management for the commission, will give an update on Asian Carp at the Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay this Thursday. Dr. Dettermer says it remains a threat to sport fishing and recreation on Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes.
But Dr. Dettmer says Great Lakes states and provinces and the federal government are maintaining their proactive fight against Asian carp.
Dr. Dettmer will appear as part of the Crossroads at Big Creek “Fish Tales” lecture series on Thursday, February 27th. The lecture starts at 7:00 PM at the preserve on Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay.
