Private John Allen National Fish Hatchery, established in 1901, is a warmwater hatchery, meaning their water stays at a mad luxurious 75-85 degrees! They raise fish that are important to Mississippi, the Lower Mississippi River Alluvial Valley, and the Gulf Coast, including alligator gar, lake sturgeon, Gulf Coast striped bass, Gulf Coast walleye, largemouth bass, and bluegill, just to name a few. Their staff also travel across the country like aquatic habitat superheroes, removing dams and installing culverts to improve habitat and increase aquatic passage.
