Marc Gaden and the Great Lakes Fishery Commission (GLFC)

The Great Lakes Fishery Commission was established in 1955 by the Canadian/U.S. Convention on Great Lakes Fisheries. The commission coordinates fisheries research, controls the invasive sea lamprey, and facilitates cooperative fishery management among the state, provincial, tribal, and federal management agencies.

Today’s guest on Blue fish Radio is Marc Gaden, PhD, professor at Michigan State University and Communications Director and Legislative Liaison for the Great Lakes Fishery Commission. With so many of us focusing on drinking water and the swim-ability of the Great Lakes, we often over-look the health of the fish and their importance to commercial, tribal and recreational fishers.
