My son, granddaughter, grandson and I met Kyle Murphy(F&G Biologist) at Glory Hole Marina on Thursday to do another weight check. Here's the e-mail I got from Kyle this morning:
Attached is the spreadsheet for the New Melones net pen evaluation. The fish have almost doubled in size. Fish went from 0.72 fish/lb as measured on 12/6/2011 to 1.27 lb/fish measured on 4/5/2012. The biggest fish we weighed individually came in at 2.5 lbs.
There are some monsters in the mix, 3-4 pounders. It looks like we'll be releasing them sometime this week, just waiting on the go-ahead from the "brass".
