The Indiana DNR is seeking angler feedback as they put together a chinook salmon management plan.
Surveys are being emailed to everyone who bought a license online last year and all anglers are urged to participate.
“We’re looking for public input about our chinook salmon stocking,” says DNR Lake Michigan Biologist Ben Dickinson. “The survey will cover angling habits and ask questions about the various management options the DNR is offering.”
Anglers who didn’t buy their license online or didn’t receive an invitation through email may take the survey by using a generic link: bit.ly/chinooksalmonstockingsurvey.
Dickinson said that angler input, along with the science, will weigh heavily in how the salmon are managed in the future.
“It’s real important that anglers take time to fill out the survey and answer all the questions,” he added. “This will give us a better idea of which management options they prefer and how they would like us to proceed.”
The survey will take about 15 minutes or less to complete. Your contact information will remain private.
