Lake Trout and Brook Trout

This fish hatchery produces approximately 1.6 million lake trout annually to be stocked in Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. In addition, about 100,000 brook trout are stocked in Lake Superior waters where stocks are depleted. Several thousand lake trout adults and coaster brook trout adults are held in the brood stock facility to provide 4 million and 500,000 eggs respectively for conservation of these species.
