🎣 Fish management practices by states is vital to ecosystems. In a changing landscape, @coparkswildlife fish hatcheries have been dedicated to improving and protecting populations of rainbow trout and other native species since 1881. While I was in CO this past week - I had the chance to tour one of their rainbow trout hatcheries and learned that if they were left to spawn naturally, only 3% of the eggs would survive in the wild 🏔In a hatchery that number rises to nearly 85%. With this species being a popular game fish in the state, CPW stocks public lakes and rivers with over 2.5 million 10" rainbows a YEAR. 🌈🐟 Who's ready to go fishing?!
