Cisco of Les Cheneaux and Their Role in Lake Huron Cisco Restoration

June 2, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

On Friday, June 2 from 2:30 – 4:30 PM fisheries biologist Dr. Kevin McDonnell from the US Fish and Wildlife Service will discuss the biology, history, and future of Cisco in Lake Huron. Cisco (also known as lake herring) were once the most abundant pelagic fish throughout the Great lakes. Unfortunately Cisco have largely been extirpated from the main basin of Lake Huron due to overexploitation, habitat degradation, and invasive species. Despite their regional declines, the Les Cheneaux Islands remain home to several populations of Cisco to this day. In this interactive lecture, we’ll discuss the Les Cheneaux population of Cisco and the important role these fish play in a larger restoration story in Lake Huron. This presentation will follow a lecture format with ample opportunities to ask questions and discuss fish and fisheries. Admission is $10 at the door. To reserve your seat, please call Hessel School House at 906-484-1333.
