Hammond Bay Biological Station

Representatives from Congressional Staff and the City of Rogers City toured the Hammond Bay biological Station last week.  The experience was fantastic. 

The Hammond Bay Biological Station is conducting important research on the Sea Lampray Eel, an invasive species that has had a devestating impact on Great Lakes fishing. The bright young professional scientists and staff at the Station were most impressive.  We are lucky to have this great facility and these great people as part of our community.

The U.S, Geological Survey (USGS) and Great Lakes Fishery Commission (GLFC) are responsible for this station which is helping to preserve sport and commercial fishing in Lake Huron and Lake Michigan too.  City of Rogers City representatives, the GLFC, and the USGS are asking Congress to continue funding for the Hammond Bay Biological Station.
