The Inland Fish and Wildlife Department serves as Sault Tribe’s biological program in the implementation of 2007 Inland Consent Decree (ICD) and the 2006 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the United States Forest Service. Our activities include inland fish and wildlife harvest reporting and statistics, recommending harvest levels, conducting fish and wildlife population and habitat research and assessments, and representing Sault Tribe on interagency committees and organizations. Our work is focused on treaty activities within the 1836 Ceded Territory.

Inland Fish and Wildlife coordinates with Sault Tribe Law Enforcement to administer permitting activities associated with the 2007 ICD and 2006 MOU. IFWD conducts lotteries for elk, bear and sturgeon. IFWD also conducts the permitting and reporting for specially regulated fishing seasons.
