Passing judgment on just "stocked fish" is passing judgment with insufficient information. Fisheries biologists and managers must consider cost, survivability, environmental impact, fishing pressure, carrying capacity, public access, species, genetics, disease spread, holdovers, politics, poaching, and a host of other factors to make an informed and intelligent decision about stocking fish. Oversimplifying an issue is usually counter-productive.
