MADISON, WI (KDAL) - Governor Scott Walker has announced a DNR plan called the "Wisconsin Walleye Initiative" to increase the number of walleyes in the state by increasing hatchery production.  The plan includes 8.2 million dollars in bonding to expand hatchery capacity and funds for the UW Extension to continue their work with private aquaculture through the end of the next fiscal year.  Production would be expanded at state, private and tribal hatcheries in the state.  Under the initiative, the current walleye fingerling production of 60 to 120,000 would increase to well over 500,000 by 2016.
