ABSTRACT: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) – Alpena Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office (Alpena FWCO) was established in 1992 by the Great Lake Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act. The role of the Alpena FWCO is to deliver the Service’s Fish and Aquatic Conservation program in Lake Huron, the western basin of Lake Erie, and the connecting channels of the St. Marys River and the St. Clair River-Detroit River corridor. Since inception, the Alpena FWCO has been working closely with our state, federal, tribal, and non-governmental partners to conserve aquatic species, protect, restore, and enhance aquatic habitats, and implement an early detection and monitoring program for aquatic invasive species in Michigan waters of Lakes Huron and Erie.
