Utah Division of Wildlife Resources stocks high-mountain lakes by air

The Utah division of wildlife resources released a video to show how it stocks its high mountain lakes.

Officials say this method of releasing them from the plane is actually safer than doing it on the ground. By air there’s a survival rate between 95 and 99 percent.

Also, transporting the fish by ground apparently takes longer and is more stressful on the fish. Officials say they stock the lakes to provide fishing opportunities for the public.
