Abstract

Stocking is used worldwide as a management tool to establish new fisheries or to increase fish numbers following a decline. Trout and salmon are not native to Australia but have been stocked into rivers and streams since the late 1800s to establish and maintain a recreational fishery. Over the past 20 years, a total of 63,700,000 brown, rainbow and brook trout have been stocked into NSW. Despite such an intense stocking regime, there has been relatively little monitoring of the success of these stockings or evaluation of the status of trout fisheries.
