DNR Warns About Certain Baitfish

The Department of Natural Resources reminds the public that importing certain baitfish species is prohibited. The DNR has recently received numerous questions regarding the importation of baitfish into Michigan and points these inquiries to the Susceptible Fish Species list. The release, both intentional and unintentional, of live baitfish is one of the best ways to spread fish diseases. It is unlawful to bring any of these species into Michigan unless they have been approved by the DNR for importation, which requires being certified by approved laboratories as disease-free. This includes bringing baitfish into Michigan for commercial, recreation or personal use.
