Brian Morrison – Spey Rod Steelhead.

The stocking of propagated fishes has been a fisheries management tool for resource managers for more than a hundred years. During this time, the roles of propagated fish have been deemed to be important for addressing and enhancing opportunities to improve recreational, commercial, and aboriginal fisheries and restore depressed or lost fish populations. However, over the last 40 years, some of these efforts have been demonstrated to be environmentally risky, harmful to local populations, ineffective, or not cost effective and have been under careful scrutiny. I will highlight many of these issues, and discuss the role of hatcheries in the 21st century.

There has been a recent  stunning development with regards to the elimination of stocking programs in Wales. This was based on sound rationale and scientific evidence. Watch this video here.
