Two groups want the federal government to declare the coaster brook trout an endangered species.
The Sierra Club and a hunting and fishing preserve in Marquette County have petitioned the Fish and Wildlife Service to add the fish to the federal endangered list.
The coaster migrates into the Great Lakes and spends much of its life there, instead of remaining in tributary streams.
If the fish is granted endangered status, it will receive special protection to prevent it from becoming extinct.
