They'll eventually call St. Marys River home (photo)

NEWS RELEASE

LAKE SUPERIOR STATE UNIVERSITY

*************************

Meet the Atlantics

Lake Superior State University Aquatic Research Laboratory Co-Director Ashley Moerke, right, introduces a raceway full of tiny Atlantic salmon fingerlings that will be released into the St. Marys River next June.

State Rep. Andrea LaFontaine (R-Columbus Twp.), second from right, joined fellow legislators for a behind-the-scenes tour of the lab on June 25 to gain an appreciation for managing a fisheries resource that draws millions of dollars to the upper Great Lakes region.

Rep. LaFontaine chairs the House Natural Resources Committee.

Looking on from the left is Cloverland Electric Cooperative Chairman Dan Daschle, whose company has been leasing space in its St. Marys hydroelectric plant to the ARL for just under three decades.

What the heck happened to the fishing in this city? It used to awesome to fish for Salmon back in the day. I could walk across the backs on a good run.

Maybe it's the fact that they cracked down on 90% of the people that were "fishing" by snagging the salmon with hooks designed to catch sharks!!!

I wouldn't put anything in that river man. It's cruel to the salmon. Did you know the official recommendation is to only eat one fish out of that river a month maximum, due to the level of mercury in them?
