Olcott Pen Rearing Project


Recommended Posts

Hi Bob,


With Hank bowing out this year, LOTSA has formed a Pen Rearing Committee with a number of members participating in the committee.  LOTSA is committed to continuing the Olcott Pen Project, particularly in light of one of the tidbits of info the DEC gave us at Thursday's Lockport State of the Lake Meeting.  While the data is preliminary since they are still in the middle of the study and will be collecting coded wire tags for several years yet, it was very encouraging to hear that based on the data collected so far, it appears that they are seeing a 1.7:1 return of pen reared vs direct stocked kings, so almost twice as many pen fish as direct, so it is important to keep the projects going.  Also it sounds like they have gotten their water issues corrected at the hatchery and are ahead of schedule this year, so we'll be getting our pen fish early, rather than later in the spring, when many of the harbors have water temp issues like we have seen the past couple years.


Please add me as the contact, at the club email address [email protected]
