Andrew Hulsey


As a biologist, he was a key player in the development of a system of fish nursery ponds, in introducing trout into waters where cold water from dams had wiped out native fish, in introducing striped bass and in widespread stocking of channel catfish to boost angling opportunities. In the late 1960s, Hulsey was elevated to assistant director of the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission then became director in 1969. Hulsey served as Commission director for 10 years.
