The Division of Sport Fish is now accepting public comment on its statewide fish stocking plan.
The Division, with assistance from private non-profit hatchery operators, plans to release approximately 6.5 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 for each species of fish that are planned for stocking.
Only fish produced from Division of Sport Fish hatchery facilities and from private non-profit hatcheries, who in cooperation with ADF&G, to improve sport fisheries are included in this plan.
The plan is posted on the agency's website at:
http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=fishingSportStockingHatcheries.stockingPlan under “Hatcheries and Stocking”. Copies of the plan are also available for review at area offices.
Comments may be emailed to Andrew Garry at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact him at:

The deadline for comment is Friday, January 29, 2016.
