No to splakes. Silvers are genetically programmed to die in about 5 years. BTW, you really need to run spell check, never heard of a sliver fish.

Splake are a cross of a male Brook Trout and a female Lake trout.
I am not sure we really need to start stocking new species in Alaska.
I wouldn't exactly called landlocked silvers sterile. I fish a lake that has Landlocked silvers in it but hasn't been stocked for over 15 years. Yet we still catch them regularly and of decent size. 1# fish are fairly common in this lake and we have caught them upwards of 3# or so.
I have eaten lots of them and they taste like Salmon to me. Nothing like mud but then again I have never fished Harding lake.
