Lone tribal member resigns from Mille Lacs Lake advisory committee


The Mille Lacs Fisheries Advisory Committee is down another key member after the group received a resignation letter from Jamie Edwards, the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe representative.

One year after the group was appointed to offer guidance to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources on how to improve the Mille Lacs Lake fishery, the resignation was seen as a major loss to some in the group. It’s the second resignation for the group following the resignation of Dr. Paul Venturelli, who represented academics. Both former members said the majority of the committee members were not willing to listen to science-based evidence.

Minnesota DNR fisheries section chief Don Pereira shared the news and looked for comments on what the committee would like to see moving forward.
