Remote site egg incubators tested for reintroducing Arctic Grayling to Michigan

Remote site egg incubators tested for reintroducing Arctic Grayling to Michigan

The Michigan Arctic Grayling Initiative and over 40 partners from universities, federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations have joined together to restore native Arctic Grayling fish to Michigan coldwater streams, which became locally extinct in the 1930s due to a combination of habitat destruction, overfishing, and introduction of non-native fish.

A video showcasing restoration efforts and featuring AWRI professor Dr. Carl Ruetz and graduate student Alan Mock can be found online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmQWGbTzLn4. Learn more about the Michigan Arctic Grayling Initiative at https://www.migrayling.org/.
