AITKIN - A study of what fish eat in Mille Lacs Lake and how much food is consumed by predator fish will be the subject of a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) presentation and discussion 7-8:15 p.m., Oct. 22, in Aitkin.

The event, which will take place at the Wealthwood Gun Club, 23573 420th Place, is part of a series intended to share biological information and answer the public's questions on important and timely topics related to the ecology and management of Mille Lacs Lake.

"We often hear questions about what fish eat in Mille Lacs Lake," said Tyler Ahrenstorff, DNR fish research specialist. "The preliminary results of this DNR research helps us better understand fish diets, which in turn helps us build understanding about the current, complex issues facing Mille Lacs Lake."

The meeting is part of an emerging agency approach to more broadly communicate fish population information, research findings and rationale for management decisions. There is no charge for admission.

DNR will call the events "Hooked on Mille Lacs: On the Road." They complement the agency's "Hooked on Mille Lacs Lake" quarterly newsletter. At these and future gatherings, local DNR fisheries biologists will present on important and timely Mille Lacs topics. A facilitated group discussion on the evening's topic will give people the chance to ask questions and make suggestions for future discussions.
