Increasing fish stocking to five million
Target One Million committed to increasing fish stocking from less than 3 million to 5 million.
This will be achieved in 2018.
En route to this ambitious goal, fish stocking records have tumbled for:
- Trout and salmon (2016) when 844,000 yearlings and larger fish were stocked
- Native fish, (2017) when more than 3 million fingerlings were stocked
