Michigan’s Mission to Restore Native Fisheries Reaching Another Milestone

The mission to restore Michigan’s native fisheries is approaching another milestone.

Arctic Grayling will soon be back in Michigan.

They came as eggs from Alaska to Michigan State University where they were raised to their juvenile stage.

The young grayling will soon be transferred to the Oden State Fish Hatchery in Emmet County.

The Oden Hatchery installed an ultra violet water disinfection system that will kill potentially harmful viruses or bacteria that come with the new fish.

Once cleared of any harmful micro-organisms they will be transferred to the Marquette State Fish Hatchery to finish growing.

Grayling were lost from Michigan waters due to over fishing and the logging industry.
