Minnow sorters needed
Genoa National Fish Hatchery needs help with the huge task of removing invasive Sticklebacks from its Fathead minnow brood stock. Fatheads provide all of the forage for six species of sport fish and many species of mussel host fish.
Please call the hatchery (608-689-2605) to volunteer for this important part of maintaining a healthy minnow population.
