How to read stocking report

Post By: BOOMBOOM7      Posted: 7/28/2019 11:28:40 PM     Points: 0    
Can someone help me understand fish explorers stocking repor? Which is found near the bottom right side for each lake.

After each fish they have a total then next to that another total in.

My main question is what is total in?

Because I don't know if they are saying yearly this is the total in the lake. (Estimating death or harvest after the stocking.) Or if the first section says the original total and total in is the total then introduced into the lake. So it's tje original total plus the total in.

See how that's confusing? I don't know between the flood or harvest or disease or whatever if it's saying hey the lake once held this many but now holds this many. Or if it holds this many and they introduce this many.

I hope it's the ladder. Because cpw app showed largemouth and fishecplorer doesn't include that species in a particular lakes stocking report which makes me think they didn't need to stick it because the fish are doing well.

These data are from CPW. It's yearly stocking data.

For example, in Antero in 2018, CPW put in (added) 15,004 brown trout and for those 15,004 brown trout, total inches was 44,728, so the average size of those fish were 2.98 inches. Just lets you know how many fish were put in and how big they generally were.
