Native Fish Releases 1988 to 1992-93
Note number: FN 0118
Published: June 1998
The department's native fish stocking program is designed to enhance existing fish populations or establish new populations. Fish releases have two objectives: conservation, and the provision of recreational fishing opportunities. In the case of trout cod, the immediate aim is to ensure the survival of this endangered fish species.
Generally, species other than golden perch are stocked for 4 or 5 years and the stocked water is then monitored for survival and growth of stocked fish. Golden perch stockings are continuous in waters where significant returns are provided to recreational fishers
