Overview

Tune in for a lunchtime Nature Break webinar!

Great Lakes fisheries are a fixture of Michigan lore and history, from fishing trips “up north” to dining on whitefish at your favorite local restaurant. Michiganders love the Great Lakes—and none more so than those who depend on these fisheries for their livelihood.

Now, the Great Lakes we love are threatened by loss—and we are working together to turn that story around.

On this webinar, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes with scientists Matt Herbert and Alexandra Verdeja-Perez. From collecting field data in the ice and snow, analyzing in the lab, and the quiet depths of Great Lakes reefs, you'll see exactly “Where the Whitefish Are.”

We'll also be joined by: 

  • Jason Smith, Fisheries Assessment Biologist, Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians
  • Dave Clapp, Fisheries Research Biologist and Charlevoix Fisheries Research Station Manager, Michigan DNR
