Seventeen appointed to new Lake Mille Lacs advisory group
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Tom Landwehr has appointed 17 Minnesotans to a newly formed Mille Lacs Fisheries Advisory Committee that will give input to the DNR on fisheries management programs and related issues for Mille Lacs Lake.
The DNR says members of the committee will contribute to the broader understanding of biological, social and economic aspects of the Mille Lacs fishery and develop recommendations to advise the DNR on potential approaches and regulations.
“Group members will represent diverse perspectives and interests and provide us with valuable understanding and advice about Mille Lacs Lake,” said Landwehr. “We are pleased at the pool of applicants and believe the people on this committee will give solid and meaningful input.”
