GLSI NEWS: So much has been happening and changing on a daily basis that keeping an update would be difficult and in many cases a disservice. We would like to take the time to thank all Businesses, Recreational Anglers, Charters, and Stakeholders in membership of the GLSI in the fight to save our Chinook Salmon fishery! The GLSI fought for 0% cuts in Chinook plants in L. Michigan in 2017 and that did not happen. That was alot to ask for in 8 short weeks, even though we thought we had a good shot. This was not a loss at all if, if you are looking long term or at the big picture. We would also like to take the time to thank the persons that volunteered their time to step up as sitting Board Members. These people have put in their own time committing thousands of hours researching scientific data, contacting entities at state and federal levels, meetings, communicating among themselves to distribute responsibilities. What has the GLSI accomplished so far?

  • Most importantly public hearings with the MDNR. Ludington 7/12 and 9/7 and South Haven 9/13
  • Hired lobbyists that put us in touch with Legislators that have the greatest impact activating a legislative voice
  • Voice with the MDNR and activating change
  • Awareness, Communication, Education to and with the Public
  • Seat on the Lake Michigan Citizens Advisory Council
  • Forcing MDNR transparency and communication with the public
  • Importantly brought to the forefront and initiating change to Lake Trout management strategies
  • Expanded relationships with Legislators, MDNR, USGS, USFWS to effect change
  • Brought awareness the Economic impact that Chinook Salmon have on our state and fishery
  • Positioned the voice of our membership in front of the MDNR, MCBA, Legislature, USGS, DEQ, EPA, Charter Associations, Focus Groups, and Public Hearings

Take time to join the GLSI and make your voice heard to save our salmon fishery
