Volunteer in the collection!

If you have a love of history, conservation and attention to detail, volunteering in the National Fish and Aquatic Conservation Archives might be a perfect fit for you! Archives volunteers help with processing collections, cataloging objects, research requests, and more. Due to limited staff, volunteering is limited to weekdays during work hours. Contact the curator if you are interested in volunteering.

Our Partners

The National Fish and Aquatic Conservation Archives has several partners.

The entire collection is housed on the beautiful grounds of the D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery in Spearfish, SD. They are a crucial partner in the success of the archival collection and exhibits.

Another partner is the entire National Fish Hatchery System, as we rely on individual fish hatcheries to donate records and artifacts to the collection for safekeeping. 

Additional partners include the Booth Society, Inc., and the American Fisheries Society.
