Battenkill Stocking: Opposition Overwhelming

Ken Cox, a biologist with the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife, noted that the public comment period for plans to stock the Batten Kill with rainbow trout, which ended Saturday, resulted in overwhelming opposition. “‘I have a binder of feedback that’s about 1.5 to 2 inches thick, and I’m in the process of going through it now,’ Cox said. ‘I would say, as a general characterization of the input, the public is overwhelmingly in opposition to the plan to stock the river and in favor of going the route of improving the fish habitats.'” Mike Gleason in the Bennington Banner.
