Default Trout Biomass Kg/Ha

Does anyone know what Kg/Ha for wild trout biomass for is considered average, good and excellent for Southeastern trout streams? From some of my reading, a 100 is considered good and a 150 or better would would be excellent. Is this accurate?

I had to research this one myself. The key issue in these studies is disseminating wild trout.

Kilogram per hectare. Both are metric terms. A kilogram is approximately 2.2 lbs and a hectare is roughly about 2.5 acres

I spoke with a fisheries biologist and he said anywhere from 15 to 50 would be considered average for a typical wild trout stream in the Southeast. Therefore, anything above 100 would be quite good.
