The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources wants the public to ask questions or submit comments on its fisheries management plans for a number of Grand Marais area lakes and streams.
The comment period runs until December 31, 2011.
The Minnesota DNR is seeking public input on 15 lakes and seven streams in the area. Every year, the DNR fisheries staff prepares or revises individual lake and stream management plans for several waters in each management area.
Several additional lakes, mostly within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, are having their management plans revised solely to update survey and assessment scheduling, the DNR said.
“Management plans describe past, present and desired future conditions of the waters,” Steve Persons, Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor said in a DNR media release. “They identify specific management activities planned for that lake or stream in the next five to 20 years.”
