                Since Native Americans feasted on them to when the first newcomers cast their first hooks on the waters, Montana fisheries and humans have been intertwined in a relationship that has evolved over the years.

                On Thursday (May 11) at 6:30 p.m. at the Montana Historical Society, Fish, Wildlife and Parks Fisheries Biologist Amber Steed and “Montana Outdoors” Editor Tom Dickson will present “From Banning TNT to Scanning DNA: What 100-Plus Years of Fisheries Management Says about Montana and Its People.”

                The free public program will use images and stories to show how managing Montana’s fisheries has evolved since its beginning and how those changes reflect our collective values and priorities.

                The speakers will talk about significant milestones and the changing physical and political landscapes that have shaped how FWP has managed the state’s aquatic resources for the public historically up to today.

                The program relates to the new MHS exhibit ”Hooked: Fishing in Montana,” and those who attend can view the exhibit before and after the program.
