Besides the Iowa fish stocking program, MMA has worked directly with Wolf Lake Hatchery on many projects with monetary donations or, when needed, providing manpower to assist with the completion of projects.

Here are some highlights since MMA was established:

  • donations to offset feed costs
  • donation to fund improvements in four lined rearing ponds
  • donation to haul fall fingerling muskellunge from Indiana to Michigan
  • volunteer manpower for pond liner installation
  • volunteer manpower for spring egg take at Thornapple Lake
  • volunteer manpower for fall fingerling pond harvest
  • donation to fund installation of aerators in the four ponds
  • donation to fund installation of solar water heaters in a hatchery building
