Stocking Report 2021
The Inland Fisheries Service (IFS) recognises the value of maintaining wild fisheries as they are best suited to our environment and provide a much sought-after angling experience. We only stock waters when wild populations are not adequately maintained by natural recruitment and we use wild fish whenever possible. Stockings are guided by the Tasmanian Inland Recreational Fishery Management Plan 2018-28 and risk assessments for each water.
In 2021 the Inland Fisheries Service stocked fish from the Salmon Ponds hatchery, commercial fish farms, wild fish trapped from the Central Highlands spawning runs, wild fish electro fished from streams and salvaged fish. Full details can be found in the Stocking Report 2021
