|•Although the role that hatchery fish played in
the rehabilitation of Parry Sound is difficult to assess, some indication can
be inferred from the timing of events.
|• The first fish stocked should have reached
maturity by 1987.
|• And indeed by 1988 stocked fish accounted for
59% of spawners.
|• Stocked fish should therefore have contributed
to the 1988 and 1989 year classes.
|• From this, an increase in progeny from these
spawning events would be expected by 1995.
