Although conflicts evident at Mille Lacs Fisheries meeting, discussion with tribes productive


ISLE—Monday's four-hour meeting of the Mille Lacs Fisheries Advisory Committee was one of the most tense in the group's eight-month history, with friction between members and Minnesota Department of Natural Resources staff.

Although it was unclear if the desire was unanimous among the committee, several members said they wanted a guarantee from state government leaders that there would not be a repeat this year of the economically devastating early closure of the walleye season last August. Another issue of division between the committee members and the DNR centered on whether the committee should tackle more of the social and economic consequences of the Mille Lacs walleye crisis or remain focused on just the walleye population issue itself.
