Description

Active state licensed commercial fishery has added about $25 million to the Michigan economy over the past year. Department of Natural Resources has released data from its 2013 state--licensed commercial fishing season. it shows that fishery provides about 300 jobs in the industry by moving fish from dockside sells to wholesale markets, then from restaurants to public plates. That leads to an estimated 25 million dollars annually. this is due to a 35 percent increase in the value of fish in 2013 compared to 2012. Copyright: Thunder Bay Broadcasting Corp. 2014
