         Description:
                  Abstract: MDNR Fisheries stocking site points
                  Purpose: MDNR Fisheries Fish Production Program Fish Distribution
                  Supplemental Information:
                           Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) Fisheries Division Site
                           Directory Sheets were used to find the approximate location of stocking sites
                           using indicated county, town, range, section and directions to the site. Where
                           directions were not available, the name of the site, and a public access site or
                           road crossing was used to approximately place the stocking site. For most
                           stocking sites located in off-shore Great Lake grids, the sites were placed in
                           the center of the grid. MDNR Fisheries rearing pond sites were not included.

                           Michigan Georef x-coordinate and y-coordinate values, and their derived
                           decimal longitude and latitude values were added to the point attribute table.
