New York’s state freshwater fish is the brook trout. To help preserve heritage strains of brook trout in the Adirondacks, DEC Fisheries staff travel to remote ponds to conduct egg takes. Eggs and milt are taken from captured fish. The eggs are fertilized and taken to a fish hatchery to grow before being stocked in ponds throughout the Adirondacks.
