LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan regulators have released a 5-year plan to guide fisheries management.
The state Department of Natural Resources says the plan seeks to continue implementing a vision for protecting, managing and improving aquatic resources that was spelled out in a previous blueprint.
Fisheries chief Jim Dexter says its goals include ensuring healthy aquatic ecosystems and sustainable fisheries; promoting effective communication, outreach and education; and improving strategic resource partnerships.
Other priorities are developing assessment and decision support tools and encouraging efficient division operations.
