DFG News Release

Public Meetings Held to Receive Comments on Hatchery and Stocking Program

Oct. 6, 2009

The Department of Fish and Game (DFG), with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
(FWS), is holding public meetings for input on its hatchery and stocking
program. The four meetings will allow DFG to hear public comment on a draft
Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) that
was released Sept. 29. The EIR/EIS discloses the environmental effects
associated with the program.

A recent court order required DFG to produce this environmental analysis
under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). It was jointly
prepared by DFG and FWS, which provides funding for the inland trout and Mad
River steelhead portions of the program. 

Members of the public can provide comments in person at any of the following
locations and times:
