MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will be developing new regulations for the lake whitefish commercial industry. To gain stakeholder participation from a wide variety of sources, the DNR will host a virtual public meeting to hear from anyone interested in Lake Michigan whitefish and discuss the lake whitefish rules for the Green Bay emergency rule.

This will be the fifth of several public meetings that have been held over the past five months to get feedback on the Lake Michigan whitefish fishery.

This meeting will take place virtually via Zoom on Thursday, March 11 at 6 p.m. Members of the public can access the meeting beginning at 5:45 p.m. using the Zoom link or by dialing 301-715-8592 and using meeting ID 818 4602 9847.

DNR staff will share information using a PowerPoint presentation during this meeting. The call-in number will allow attendees to listen to the discussion. However, to view the presentation, the DNR recommends attending using a computer via the Zoom link.
