A survey by South Dakota wildlife officials has found that few anglers object to the addition of Atlantic salmon to Lake Oahe.
South Dakota's Game, Fish and Parks Department is considering adding the fish to the Missouri River reservoir in the Dakotas to boost its salmon fishery. Chinook salmon have been stocked in the lake each year since the mid-1980s.
The department in April asked for public comments on the idea. The agency says 86 percent of the 2,311 people who responded either favored the plan or were neutral. Only 14 percent of respondents objected to the proposal.
Wildlife officials will decide later whether to continue exploring the option.
