Since 1871 the National Fish Hatchery system has been at work improving recreational fishing and restoring aquatic species that are in decline, at risk, and are important to the health of our aquatic systems. Across the country, a network of national fish hatcheries work with states and tribes to conserve, restore and enhance the fish and aquatic resources of America for future generations. Conservation is at the heart of what we do, for the American people who benefit today and future generations who will inherit our legacy of conserving America’s aquatic resources.
Allegheny National Fish Hatchery is currently raising bloaters (Coregonus hoyi) and three strains of lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush from eyed eggs to yearlings. These species are part of an initiative to restore native fish to the Great Lakes.
