Extinct Fish to be Revived in Northern Michigan

An extinct fish in Northern Michigan could be revived, thanks to one local native American tribe. The Arctic Grayling may still exists in Alaska and Montana, but has been extinct here for decades. The Little River band of Ottawa Indians has landed a $200,000 federal grant and enlisted Michigan Tech scientists for a two year research effort. That effort will determine if it's feasible to re-introduce the Grayling in a section of the 230 mile big Manistee River in eastern Manistee County. Earlier effort to re-introduce the fish in the 1980's and 90's failed.
