Five Million Fish Raised and Stocked by Hackettstown Hatchery in 2017

Here's a press release that may interest you. The first link takes you to an interesting story, not an entangled mess of information about changes in the fish code for 2018, the link I posted a few weeks ago. 

A record five million cold, cool, and warmwater fish, consisting of 15 species were raised and stocked by the Hackettstown Hatchery in 2017. Species such as Northern Pike, Walleye, Channel Catfish, Hybrid Striped Bass and Muskellunge from the hatchery provide exceptional angling opportunities throughout the state. Other species are raised to supplement and support other popular fisheries.

For more information on the new record see the DEP news release at ; more information about the Hackettstown Hatchery, including its history, feature articles, species raised and stocking summaries can be found on the hatchery's web page at . A fisheries forum will be held at the hatchery on January 20 - see for details.
