DNR asks for help in tracking fish

 

The Department of Natural Resources is encouraging anglers across the state who fish the Great Lakes to keep an eye out for tagged fish.

“If anglers catch any of these marked or tagged fish, it's really valuable to us as an agency for them to report those fish. So, there's a variety of different type of tags that anglers might come across – one is a jaw tag or an anchor tag attached to a fin,” says DNR spokesperson Elyse Walter.

 

The mass marking provides critical data as fisheries biologists look to determine the value of naturally reproduced fish versus stocked fish, and lake-wide movement of fish. Walter says if you catch a tagged fish, head to michigan.gov/taggedfish to report.
