Kings River Fisheries Management Program
The Kings River Fisheries Management Program works in partnership with the Conservancy for the implementation of the Ted Martin Family Grant Project that will include construction of an incubator house ( hatchery) facility which will give the project control of the genetic characteristics of fingerlings to be released into the river. The Project will select and purchase trout eggs over a twenty year period with the goal of eventually producing the most adaptive, best suited eggs for the Kings River that will once again, as it did fifty years ago, result in a superior strain of rainbow trout.
