Did you know commercial fishing on the Great Lakes was born out of necessity to support the fur trade? Or that water quality in the lakes began to decline in the 1800s? What kind of threat do Asian carp pose to the fisheries today?

Learn all about these issues and more with the new edition of The Life of the Lakes.

From the earliest days, people have been drawn to the beauty, resources and way of life found in the Great Lakes. This book explores the part that the fishery has played in the life of the Great Lakes, examining the management, ecology, history, present and future of the lakes from a regional perspective.

The book is written for anglers, educators, natural resource managers, and anyone interested in Great Lakes issues. Now in its third edition, The Life of the Lakes continues to provide up-to-date information, focusing on the people, the resources and the fish that all play a part in the story.
