Slide 18:

Rainbow trout stocking in Arizona
• Previously stocked diploid fish capable of reproduction
• Switch in 2010 to use of only triploid eggs
• Fully implemented by 2013
• Contract with USFWS Hatchery to produce triploid eggs
– Savings of $500,000 over next 5 years

Personally I dislike Triploids, Its all from federal regulations not state.

I think it is better to have triploids than none at all. Gotta remember as much as we like them they are non native. Better solution than not having any at all. I would love to hear the game and fish azflyandtie member that always shares and interesting perspective his .02. I know this they will be ugly but be prepared to see some fat slob fish caught if they are indeed used.

.....and sparrows and pigeons and starlings and chukars and pheasants and bullfrogs and rats and burmuda grass and Canadians.

My uncle once told me my grandma was 1/64 Native so I am good at 1/128th!
Leave your fishing gear at the door on your way out all you blue eyed devils!
