The Value of Stocking Lakes

Event details

Do Hatchery Trucks

Make Happy Anglers?

Presenter: Bill Patterson ACA Fisheries Biologist

Comment: Bill will discuss the evaluation of entrenched assumptions of Put-and-Take fisheries. Stocking trout to create successful sport fisheries is an irresistible lure to fisheries managers and sport anglers alike. But the implicit assumptions behind this simple process have seldom been questioned or assessed. Using common fisheries monitoring techniques, combined with social surveys, at nine Alberta lakes, Bill quantified three main assumptions behind put-and-take stocking.
