If the fish from a particular stream have become genetically adapted to their home stream over many generations, what might happen if their fertilized eggs are used to restock a different stream that has become depleted of fish?
Note-A fertilized egg means that the sperm has combined with the egg cell so that it can start develpoing into a fish. Restocking a stream refers to adding a new fish to that area.

    Wouldn't it depend, to some extent, how similar the conditions were to the original stream?

    it would depend on the fish's traits from their "home" stream.

    Well first of all some of those fertilized eggs may be able to adapt to the new conditions at the different stream so they may have a chance in surviving while other will die.
