May 2022 — MDC staff at the Chesapeake Fish Hatchery near Mt. Vernon take special care to transfer young channel catfish from indoor tanks to outdoor rearing ponds. This will allow the small catfish to grow to a larger size during the summer. They will then be stocked in public lakes in the fall.
Channel catfish are the only fish in MDC’s hatchery system that completes its entire time at the hatchery in one season.
