This past Friday, April 19, the Texas A&M Aquacultural Research and Teaching Facility had our first stocking of channel catfish at Central Park in College Station for the TPWD Neighborhood Fishin’ Program. This program is designed to encourage fun, neighborhood fishing for youth and the ARTF is proud to partner and spread the joys of fishing in our area.
If you missed the stocking, you can catch the action below thanks to the Inland Fisheries College Station – Houston District – Texas Parks and Wildlife Facebook live video. The College Station Eagle also recognized the stocking, including a shot of a visiting Fullbright Scholar in from Dr. Delbert Gatlin III’s lab, Gabriel Gana Bake.
Be on the lookout for our next scheduled stocking on Friday, May 3. This will mark a momentous milestone in our partnership with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the City of College Station. We will stock our 25,000 fish since 2012! Happy fishing!
