Together, We Can Protect Michigan's Sportfish.


In Michigan, generations of sportsmen and sportswomen, along with conservation partners and communities have worked to restore our fishery.  We must protect it.

What is the Michigan Sportfishing Alliance?


The Michigan Sportfishing Alliance was created to promote a new model for managing Michigan's recreational fisheries and gamefish species, with a special focus on updating Michigan’s commercial fishing regulations.

This effort represents a partnership of individuals, organizations, companies, agencies and others who are concerned about current threats being posed by the commercial fishing and netting industry.

The effort to expand commercial take to include gamefish species such as lake trout, walleye and other species, as well as expand commercial netting on Saginaw Bay for perch, is unprecedented.  We need to act now.
