The Great Lakes need help to stay stocked with fish

An interview with Gary Whelan of the State Department of Natural Resources.

Here's something to think about the next time you pick up a fishing pole and cast into one of the Great Lakes.

That fish you catch might have gotten there not courtesy of Mother Nature, but rather with some help from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

This year alone, the MDNR will stock about 19 million fish into the Great Lakes.

Gary Whelan is with the State Department of Natural Resources and he joined us today from Lansing.

Listen to the full interview above.
