White Sulphur Springs National Fish Hatchery raises fish and other aquatic species to support recreational fishing, tribal subsistence fisheries, and the recovery and restoration of imperiled species
The Mission of the White Sulphur Springs National Fish Hatchery is working with the community and our partners to be good stewards of both the environment and historical significance of the White Sulphur Springs National Fish Hatchery. We provide recreational fishing opportunities, recover fish, mussels and other wildlife and their habitats, and promote awareness and appreciation of our cultural and natural resources for the benefit of all people.
- 1900: White Sulphur Springs National Fish Hatchery is established to produce fish for the American Public
- 1976: The hatchery becomes part of the National Broodstock Program. Since then hatchery personnel have shipped millions of disease-free rainbow trout eggs to other national, state, and tribal hatcheries across the country.
- 1995: The hatchery added a freshwater mussel conservation program. Today, we provide shelter for mussels threatened by pollution and raise baby mussels to improve wild populations.
