Lake Michigan Fisheries Forum

In 2012, the Lake Michigan Fisheries Forum (LMFF) changed from an advisory group to a forum devoted to raising awareness of Lake Michigan fisheries issues and providing an opportunity for discussion and feedback.  

The LMFF is a citizen-based group, and its charge is to review and provide input into the fishery goals, objectives and management plans for Lake Michigan. Members assist fisheries managers in charting the future course of fisheries management by providing feedback to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Lake Michigan Fisheries Team.

Anglers, commercial fishers and anyone else with an interest in Lake Michigan’s fisheries are encouraged to join.

The LMFF is facilitated by Titus Seilheimer, Sea Grant, and is independent of the DNR. Representatives from major sport fishing clubs on Lake Michigan and Green Bay, commercial fishers, the Conservation Congress and the University of Wisconsin System are formal members of the forum. Meetings are open to the public. 

Further details are on the DNR website.
