In an effort to promote fisheries partnering and recreational fishing opportunities, the Uvalde National Fish Hatchery has provided over 60,000 channel catfish to its state partner, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD). The fish were captively spawned and propagated at the Uvalde NFH and distributed by TPWD to State waters and hatchery's. The fish will be used for recreational fishing opportunities and for future hatchery broodstock. The partnership between the the Fish and Wildlife Service and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will benefit anglers of all ages who enjoy the great fishing opportunities throughout the state of Texas.
