Native Aquatic Plant Nursery

Texas Parks and Wildlife Inland Fisheries biologists have developed methods for rearing native aquatic vegetation for planting into Texas’ public reservoirs that will provide better fish habitat and water quality, thereby improving fishing and the quality of life for Texans.

Thanks to grant funds provided by ETWWF, the Native Aquatic Plant Nursery housed at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens now propagates these plants for stocking into public waters.
