The Iron Fish Distillery located in Thompsonville, Michigan is supporting the Michigan Arctic Grayling Initiative by offering a line of farm distilled whiskeys that provide a significant donation toward the reintroduction effort. These special release whiskeys are focused on the successful reintroduction of the iconic Michigan grayling and feature gorgeous labels with arctic grayling as provided by artist Dani Knoph. "The story of Michigan's lost Grayling is now a comeback story - full of hope, challenge, science, and partnership." said Knoph. "Restoring Michigan's wild Grayling encourages us to learn from the past, evaluate the present and define the future. From Montana and Alaska to Michigan, many people are caring for this native species. It gives me hope. It's the Native American Seventh Generation Principle at work."

The Department of Natural Resources, in partnership with the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians, announced a proposed initiative in June 2016 that aims to bring back an extirpated species to the state – Arctic grayling.  The Michigan Arctic Grayling Initiative seeks to establish self-sustaining populations of this species throughout its historical range in Michigan. The initiative has more than 50 partners collaborating on the reintroduction.

The next steps include identifying interest and abilities of partners, collecting baseline data, initiating the building of broodstock and stocking efforts. The Manistee River watershed, once known as a premier grayling river, will be the first location for reintroduction.

The DNR will work closely with partners as the proposed Michigan Arctic Grayling Initiative moves forward. The Little River Band, located in Manistee County, has been engaged in extensive research for potential grayling reintroduction for several years.
