Unbelievable aerial fish restocking in Utah


Ever wonder how fish populations in lakes remain sustainable?

Hatcheries in the western state stock lakes using 'plane drops.' Native species of fish are raised from birth to be released into the wild while they're still young.

We get to watch as Ted Hallows, a supervisor at a fish facility in Utah, releases tiger trout, brook trout, rainbow trout and splake over bodies of water. He attaches a GoPro camera to the plane, providing breathtaking images of flying fish.
