Drs. Gatlin and Sink and other Aquacultural Research and Teaching Facility (ARTF) representatives were invited to this year’s TPWD Inland Hatchery Annual Production meeting held in Bandera, Texas on February 12-14. Brian Ray, ARTF Research Associate, presented an overview of research being done at the ARTF. Together, they reviewed current projects between the two work groups and discussed potential collaborations that would assist TPWD hatcheries in their production efforts.
The ShareLunker Program that is advertised in the photo above is an effort by TPWD to improve the genetics in Texas’ largemouth bass population.
