Welcome to the Warm Springs Fish Technology Center

Our mission is to provide leadership in the scientifically based management of national fishery resources through development of new concepts and techniques to solve specific problems in aquatic restoration and recovery activities.

 

What We Do

The Warm Springs Fish Technology Center (Center) is a component of the Warm Springs Regional Fisheries Center and was established to improve and enhance fisheries management. We provide consolidated technical operational support to Regional fisheries operations, fish culture technical development, and the Service’s technical assistance to the emerging private aquaculture industry. The Center is comprised of a Cryopreservation Laboratory, Conservation Genetics Laboratory, and the National Fish Strain Registry at Warm Springs, Georgia, and a field station at Bears Bluff National Fish Hatchery in Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina.

The Center is the Southeast Region Fisheries Program's sole applied research facility and one of only seven such facilities nationwide. We conduct cooperative studies that develop, promote, and support methodologies and technologies resulting in healthy fish populations such as Gulf, Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon, Gulf coast striped bass, robust redhorse, and alligator gar.
