Annual Landlocked Atlantic Salmon Egg Collection Complete

salmon egg collectionOver the course of two chilly days on Little Clear Pond in November, staff from DEC’s Adirondack Fish Hatchery and Region 5 Fisheries completed the annual landlocked Atlantic salmon egg take.

Staff collected a total of 748,100 eggs from 174 wild females and 156 captive broodstock, allowing DEC to meet stocking targets for 43 waters throughout New York State.

Thanks to the continued success of this annual effort, anglers can expect good opportunities to catch a leaping landlocked.
