Protecting our Great Lakes

February 26th, 2010

This week found me in our nations capitol meeting with legislators about the health of our Great Lakes.  Ed McCoy and myself attended Great Lakes Day in Washington, DC to represent the Michigan River Guides Association in the the fight against the invasion of the Asian Carp.

Great Lakes Day is a gathering of over 100 conservationists from across the Great Lakes region, our main reason in attending was to voice our concern on invasive species.  We met with many of our Michigan legislators to discuss their stand on this issue, they feel that the Asian Carp is a direct threat to Michigan’s destination sport fishery as well as the recreational boating industry.  It was very refreshing to hear such positive comments from our elected officials, the federal action plan that has been drawn up has many questionable aspects.  Our Michigan legislators have been very diligent in releasing new bills to Congress that have addressed a better approach to the Asian Carp issue.  Please contact your local legislator to voice your opinion on this issue-the future of the Great Lakes depends upon the you taking a stand!
