"The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Fisheries Program has played a vital role in conserving America's fisheries since 1871, partnering with states, tribes, federal agencies, other Service programs, and private interests in efforts to conserve fish and other aquatic resources. The Alpena FWCO meets Service fishery goals in Lake Huron, western Lake Erie, and connecting waterways of the St. Marys River, St. Clair River and Detroit River through partnerships.; partnerships encourage cooperative conservation, and restoration and management of the fishery resources of the Great Lakes Basin. We work to investigate and restore native fish species like lake trout and lake sturgeon, monitor for and educate about the threats of aquatic invasive species, restore aquatic habitat that benefits fish and wildlife, and assist tribal and National Wildlife Refuge partners with fishery issues."
