From Walleye to White Fish: Fishing and Fisheries of the Great Lakes | North Coast Chronicles
There's something fishy going on!
As a $7 billion per year - and very diverse - industry, Great Lakes fishing is not just big business. Fish in the Great Lakes provide subsistence. Fishing in the Great Lakes fosters family time and treasured memories. Fishers in the Great Lakes support an extraordinary sportfishing market fueled by 139 species and a stock of controlled introductions. North Coast Chronicles hosts "From Walleye to White Fish: Fishing and Fisheries of the Great Lakes." Our guests are Mr. Jesse Simpkins, immediate past chair of the board of the American Sportfishing Association; Dr. Marc Gaden, Deputy Executive Secretary of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, and Mr. Dennis Eade, Executive Director of the Michigan Steelhead and Salmon Fishermen's Association. These three extraordinary experts talk about the immensity and importance of the fresh water and Great Lakes fishing industry but also about the quality and initiatives to preserve and protect this valuable resource!
