Shane Bland checks on some black crappie fingerlings in the Holding House raceway.

Black crappie are being experimentally raised to see if we can stock enough to influence fishing quality in lakes.

John Davis checks a black crappie.

John Davis checks the weight of the fish to calculate the numbers being stocked.

John Davis is happy to be delivering fish to stock in public waters of Alabama.
