The plan would create $8.2 million in borrowing authority to expand hatcheries and allocate $1.8 million for operating expenses and $2 million for grants for private organizations to expand walleye production. The plan also include money for aquaculture work, buying fingerlings from private vendors and expanding a program that gives tribal youth jobs on natural resources-related projects.
