posted in: Regional | 0

NOAA Fisheries is making available roughly $16.7 million, thru the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, for habitat restoration projects in severely degraded areas of the Great Lakes.

Funded projects are spread throughout Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, and New York. They will benefit a variety of important recreational fish species such as lake whitefish, northern pike, and walleye in eight Great Lakes Areas of Concern.

The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is a collaborative effort between the Environmental Protection Agency and 15 other federal agencies to build on existing and current work to restore the Great Lakes.
