Minnesotans can apply to serve on committees that advise the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources about fisheries and wildlife topics. The DNR is seeking to fill open seats on the Mille Lacs Fisheries Advisory Committee (MLFAC), and the Minnesota R3 Council.

Members include representatives of area resorts, guides, and other businesses; property owners; county officials; representatives of DNR’s workgroups that focus on walleye, bass, and northern pike and muskellunge; and other members of the public.
The DNR supports the committee by supplying information that is used to help manage the Mille Lacs fisheries including standard fish population assessments, creel harvest surveys, status of invasive species, or other available information requested by the committee.
Applications can be sent through Feb. 22 for one of several open seats at https://engage.dnr.state.mn.us/fisheries-and-wildlife-advisory-groups. The committee has openings for a business representative and multiple at-large members.
