Abonmarche partnered with City of South Haven on the Black River Fish Cleaning Station along the shores of Lake Michigan which is free to use by both residents and visitors alike. It provides two multi-cleaning station tables with grinders, spray hoses, power cords for knives that feed each table from above, a fish scaler, and the facility is ADA accessible.
Abonmarche provided architectural and engineering design services for the facility as well as a secured grant from the Great Lakes Fisheries Trust on behalf of the City of South Haven in the amount of $150,000 to offset a portion of the overall project costs.
The Black River Park boat launch is the only public boat launch between Benton Harbor and Saugatuck and serves a large angler population. People who aren’t using the launch will be able to park in the free lot immediately south of the facility. The station is be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week from April 15 through October and will be closed or on reduced hours from November through April.
