Weigh in on fish-stocking plan
The Division of Sport Fish is now accepting public comment on its statewide fish-stocking plan. The Division, with assistance from private, nonprofit hatchery operators, plans to release approximately 7 million fish into the waters of Alaska every year for the next five years to benefit recreational anglers. The stocking plan outlines the location, number and size or life stage of each species chosen for stocking. Only fish from Division of Sport Fish hatchery facilities and private nonprofit hatcheries are included in this plan.
The plan is posted online at: Plan. Copies of the plan are also available for review at Division of Sport Fish management area offices. Comments may be emailed to Andrew Garry at or contact him at: Andrew Garry,
