Overfishing and habitat destruction drove the grayling to extinction in the state decades ago.
But one band of Ottawa Indians has landed a $200,000 federal grant to work to bring it back.
The band has enlisted Michigan Technological University scientists for a two-year research effort to test the feasibility of reintroducing the grayling in the Big Manistee River watershed of the northern Lower Peninsula.
The study concentrates on a short and relatively pristine section of the 230-mile river in eastern Manistee County.
Restoration might happen soon, or perhaps only after many years.
