"The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Fisheries Program consists of almost 800 employees nationwide, located at 64 Fishery Resource Offices, including a Conservation genetics Laboratory, 69 National Fish Hatcheries, 9 Fish Health Centers, 7 Fish Technology Centers, and a Historic National Fish Hatchery.

Together, these employees and facilities provide a network that is unique among Federal agencies, State and Tribal governments, and private organizations in its broad on-the-ground geographic coverage, its array of technical and managerial capabilities, and its ability to work across political boundaries and take a national perspective. It also brings to the table the only Federal hatchery system, with extensive experience culturing more than one hundred different aquatic species." (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior. Conserving America’s Fisheries: Fisheries Program Vision for the Future. December 2002).

In the Northeast, we have 10 active hatcheries – four of which contribute to fish conservation in the Connecticut River basin. We have 10 active Fishery Resource Offices two of which contribute to this basin’s fishery management, conservation and restoration efforts. Support for these activities is provided by one Fish Health Center and one Fish Technology Center.
