Chip Christensen Discusses How The Lake Shelbyville Fish Habitat Alliance Got Started

The Lake Shelbyville Fish Habitat Alliance got its start in August of 2016 because of a conversation between an area biologist and Chip’s Marine owner Chip Christensen.



The Fish Habitat Alliance works with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the US Army Corps of Engineers, an executive committee, and a placement committee to build and place different structures in Lake Shelbyville.



Just before the COVID-19 pandemic started, they built about 150 different structures, but they haven’t been able to get them into the lake because of social distancing restrictions.


Chip Christensen is with the Lake Shelbyville Fish Habitat Alliance, is the Owner of Chip’s Marine, and was a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
