California Agrees To Limit Trout Stocking
Environment & The Green Beat
SACRAMENTO (AP) ― The California Department of Fish and Game has agreed to stop adding millions of hatchery-raised trout to many of the state's mountain rivers and lakes. The agreement was reached between the state and two environmental groups as part of a 2006 lawsuit over declines in native fish and frogs.
Noah Greenwald is a conservation biologist with the Center for Biological Diversity, one of the groups that sued the state. He says the agreement will preserve native species while the state prepares a more comprehensive environmental review of its fish-stocking programs. The deal allows stocking programs in reservoirs that are not connected to rivers.
Jordan Traverso, a spokeswoman for the Department of Fish and Game, says the agreement will go before a Sacramento County Superior Court judge on Monday for approval.
How many reservoirs are there in Kalifornia that aren't connected to rivers? NONE!!!!
Fuck, do they have any idea how much mony DFG will lose? Who in the hell do these motherfuckers think support Department of Fish and Game?
