DNR Seeks Public Input to Develop Whitefish Rule

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is seeking public input as it develops a specific rule to better protect spawning whitefish in northern Lake Michigan and potentially modify commercial fishing zone whitefish allocation or zone structure to better reflect current whitefish abundance and distribution.

A public meeting will be held Thursday, May 12 at 6:30 pm at the Door County Government Building, 421 Nebraska St. in Sturgeon Bay to discuss potential changes and gather informal feedback prior to drafting a specific rule change proposal. There will be future formal public involvement opportunities during the official rule change process. The meeting is open to the public and will be held in the Peninsula Room of the Door County Government Building.
