More than 80 volunteer anglers with the Salmon Ambassadors program, a Michigan Sea Grant initiative, have provided important data on the Chinook salmon population in Lake Michigan and Lake Huron.

The volunteers measured nearly 8,500 salmon caught from 2014 to 2017 and checked whether they were outfitted with a fin clip (stocked fish) or not (wild fish).

A collaborative effort of the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, Michigan Sea Grant helps to foster economic growth and protect Michigan’s coastal, Great Lakes resources through education, research and outreach.
