Causer Applauds Reversal of Planned Hatchery Closing
3/22/2013

HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today applauded the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s reversal of the decision to close two of its trout hatcheries, including one in Oswayo, Potter County.

“I am glad the commission saw the error of its ways and decided to keep these hatcheries open,” said Causer, who chairs the House Game and Fisheries Committee. “Closing two hatcheries in virtually the same area of the state would have resulted in decreased stocking in area waterways, and that would have had a devastating impact on local fishing opportunities and the local economy.”

The other hatchery that was scheduled to close is in Bellefonte, Centre County. Combined, the two hatcheries produce more than 750,000 adult trout, including brook, brown, rainbow and golden trout.

The commission announced its plan in late January, stating that the closures would save the agency approximately $2 million.

“I understand the agency is facing financial challenges, but the hatchery closures would have done more harm than good,” Causer said. “I look forward to working with the commission to find other cost-saving alternatives while continuing to provide quality services to our boaters and anglers.”
