Service Biologist Presents Assessment Results to Technical Fisheries Committee

Region 8, March 29, 2007

The 2000 Consent Decree requires that harvest quotas for lake trout and whitefish be established through a multi-agency scientifically objective process. 


The Modeling Subcommittee (MSC) of Technical Fisheries Committee (TFC) consists of biologists and analysts from the State of Michigan, the tribes with treaty fishing rights in these waters, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  


As co-chair of the Modeling Subcommittee, John Netto from the Green Bay Fishery Resources Office presented the preliminary lake trout harvest limits to the TFC on behalf of the MSC. 


This meeting allows representatives from each party to ask questions and seek clarification on the results of the assessments and resulting harvest limits.
