LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Officials say some sections of this year’s Michigan Fishing Guide have been translated into languages other than English to accommodate people of diverse backgrounds.

The Department of Natural Resources says parts of the guide are available in Arabic, Chinese and Spanish. Five-page documents in those languages are available on the DNR website.

The multilingual excerpts deal with topics such as getting fishing licenses, hook-and-line fishing regulations, free fishing weekends, species and season dates, and fish identification.

Elyse Walter of the DNR Fisheries Division says officials are working with community organizations that serve people speaking Arabic, Chinese and Spanish to distribute the documents.
