California White Seabass Hatchery a success

by AFTCO 26 May 21:28 UTC

Estimates now show that roughly 30% of wild-caught adult white seabass have origins back to the hatchery program.

Previous estimates put the number at less than 1%.

California must act to make the white seabass hatchery a priority in light of this study.

The Ocean Resources Enhancement and Hatchery Program (OREHP) is woefully underfunded.

California anglers already strongly support the CDFW hatchery program, contributing an estimated $1.7 million to OREHP annually.

Thankfully, state funding sources potentially exist. For example, the CDFW can reinstate the $434,000 yearly Sport Fish Restoration Account (SFRA) funds previously removed from OREHP.
