Fish for All: Perspectives on the History of Lake Michigan Fisheries Policy and Management
Exhibit opening at Michigan State University on June 11, 2000
"Fish for All: Perspectives on the History of Lake Michigan Fisheries Policy and Management" will open at the Michigan State University Museum in East Lansing on June 11, 2000. The exhibit, which was produced by the Great Lakes Center for Maritime Studies at Western Michigan University (WMU), examines how sport, commercial, and trial fishers and state and federal government officials have historically managed Lake Michigan fisheries. Led by Dr. Michael J. Chiarappa, Assistant Professor of History and Dr. Kristin M. Szylvian, Associate Professor of History, the Fish for All team collected hundreds of artifacts, documents and photographs for the exhibit. Many of the items in the exhibit are from private and family collections. Visitors to the exhibit will have an opportunity to hear excerpts from over fifty Oral History interviews gathered by Chiarappa, Szylvian, and their WMU students.
Fish for All will remain at the Michigan State University Museum through August 27. The exhibit will travel to the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin (September 16 to November 26) and the Michigan Maritime Museum in South Haven, Michigan (December 2 to March 3, 2001).
