The Georgian Agency of Wildlife has released 700 stream trout into the Khrami river, in Kvemo Kartli region in order to restore the local population.

Stream trout are an endangered species in Georgia.

The Department of Environmental Supervision has installed photo and video traps to observe and protect the stream trout, said the Georgian Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection.

The Georgian Agency of Wildlife has been implementing the project since 2016, which aims to restore the threatened species throughout Georgia.

The plan of the agency is to produce half a million stream trout a year.

As of today, more than 100,000 stream trout are produced artificially, says the Georgian Agency of Wildlife.
