Governor Charlie Baker today joined Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matthew Beaton, Department of Fish and Game Commissioner George Peterson, local legislators, City of Boston officials and students from Mary Curley Elementary to help the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife stock Jamaica Pond in Boston with trout.
The fish stocking event is part of a Division of Fisheries and Wildlife program to supplement existing fish populations and provide greater recreational opportunities while distributing brook, brown, rainbow, and tiger trout into more than 500 bodies of water throughout the Commonwealth each year. This spring, the division will release 500,000 trout produced at state-operated hatcheries in Belchertown, Montague, Sandwich, Palmer, and Sunderland.
