SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow plans to visit Lake Superior State University’s Aquatic Research Laboratory, where biologists are working to boost Great Lakes fishing and water resources.

The lab partners with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to produce Atlantic salmon for release into the St. Marys River, which links Lakes Huron and Superior. The lab also rears coaster brook trout in hopes of restoring the once-abundant fish to Lake Superior tributaries.

During her Thursday visit to Sault Ste. Marie, Stabenow also is scheduled to host a discussion of legislation she proposed to improve early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease through the Medicare program.
