Hatchling striped bass stocked in South Carolina waters
The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has stocked several water bodies in the state with hatchling striped bass, according to The Greenville News. More than 280,000 went into Lake Hartwell alone.
Stocking in other areas helped push the total number of bass added to 458,000. Fisheries biologists say the baby fish will grow to good, catchable sizes in a couple of springs.
Of course, not all of the small bass will survive that long. Natural predators will take their bite out of the populations stocked, but officials are optimistic they’ve stocked enough to account for losses that will come.
