Tracking in Chicago River offers interesting look at fish movement

One bluegill in the Chicago River regularly makes an 8.7-mile trek in a period of about 18 hours.
“He’s done it five times,” said Austin Happel, research biologist at the John G. Shedd Aquarium, who is leading a multiagency study that is tracking species in the Illinois river. “It’s really interesting to see such a little fish make such a huge journey many times, back and forth, while other bluegills in various parts of the waterway are basically staying put.”

Stocking numbers reduced as New York’s Essex County fish hatchery faces wastewater issue

Five years ago, the staff at Essex County Fish Hatchery would annually stock 45,000 to 50,000 brook, brown and rainbow trout in the waters around Essex County, supplementing the wild salmonids that roam the streams, lakes and ponds of the county in the heart of the Adirondacks.
In 2024, the hatchery in Crown Point, N.Y., will stock just a fraction of that number, instead emphasizing quality over quantity, prioritizing stocking of two-year-old and even three-year-old fish over yearlings.
