Albany, NY (WIBX) – Fish hatcheries across the state are getting a little help from the Department of Environmental Conservation.

The DEC has proposed changes that will allow the commercial sale of black bass by fish markets in New York, but only if those fish were purchased from a licensed hatchery.

Currently, only hatchery operators may sell black bass, and in many cases, the fish are exported to nearby states for resale.

According to New York Farm Bureau president, Dean Norton, “Opening up the New York state market for New York fish growers is an important step in helping these businesses grow and support new farm jobs.”

The proposal will be open to public feedback until June 18th. To read the full proposal, visit the DEC’s website here.
