Welcome to the Orangeburg National Fish Hatchery
Celebrating a Century of Fisheries Conservation
Established in 1911, the Orangeburg National Fish Hatchery is one of over 60 Federal Fish Hatcheries located throughout the country. It consists of two separate units, the Orangeburg main station and the Orangeburg substation. The main station is located just outside the city limits of Orangeburg. The substation is located seven miles southwest of Orangeburg. We cordially invite you to explore our website and plan your next visit to Orangeburg NFH.
