According to China Daily, this is an initiative taken by Henan department of agriculture and Sanmenxia municipal government to promote breeding, give protection and to maintain the diversity and ecological balance of aquatic resources.

Trout and other fish are raised from eggs, become fry and fingerlings and then transported to streams where they are released, officials said.

The fry are also raised in long, shallow concrete tanks filled with fresh stream water and fed commercial fish food in pellets.
