The article reports that fisheries officials at the Eastern Region of New Zealand are waiting for reports from anglers so they can determine whether their revamped juvenile release program has been a success. Fisheries officials conducted a survey on fish catch in 2010 in the lakes of the region which they said showed that there was a high mortality rate among the released fingerlings. Eastern Fish and Game officer Matt Osbourne claims that in 2013, they expect sizes of 50 to 53 centimeters.
