Beneficial Fish Oil from Lake Superior fish - Siscowet Lake Trout Oil Rendering Study Workshops

Date: June 26, 2012 - June 28, 2012
Location: See individual meeting locations.

Because of the high fatty acid content of Lake Superior siscowet lake trout, Michigan Sea Grant and fishery managers around Lake Superior are exploring the feasibility of a fishery for this species. A Lake Superior siscowet fishery could supply fish for an oil rendering facility to produce fish oil for the nutraceutical industry. 

Three workshops will be held at the end of June that will review the findings of the Siscowet Lake Trout Oil Rendering Study. The Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission is helping Michigan Sea Grant coordinate the workshops that will take place at these locations:  

June 26, 2012 – Legendary Waters Casino Conference Center (Red Cliff, WI)

June 27, 2012 – Ojibwa Casino Resort - Chippewa Room (Baraga, MI)

June 28, 2012 – Bay Mills Community College - 110 Mikanuk Hall (Bay Mills, MI)

All workshops begin at 7:00 p.m. local time and are free to attend with no registration required. For additional information about the workshops or study results, contact Ron Kinnunen at 906-226-3687.
