Restoration of native fish species and promoting healthy fish communities is a priority for the Alpena Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office. Native species that the office routinely works with include lake trout, lake whitefish, cisco and lake sturgeon. The office also monitors for invasive fish and invertebrates by targeting grass carp, bighead carp, silver carp, Eurasian ruffe, red swamp crayfish and other species not native to the Great Lakes.
