After 25 years, Lake Michigan refuge fails to nurture wild lake trout | Great Lakes Echo
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Any lake trout pulled from the wild blue waters of Lake Michigan now was probably born in a government building.

Thatís despite a 45-year-old, multi-million-dollar program aimed at restoring a self-sustaining, naturally reproducing population of what was formerly the Great Lakesí top predator.

Lake trout were wiped out in most of the Great Lakes by the mid-1900s as a result of overfishing, invasive species and habitat destruction...
