Front Royal Fish Cultural Station Renovations Complete

The Front Royal Fish Cultural Station, which has produced fish for Virginia’s waters since 1933, just re-opened after extensive renovations. The updates to the facility include the lining of four of the ponds, a state-of-the-art water filtration system where waters from Passage Creek enter the hatchery buildings, and two new hatchery buildings with modern, efficient hatching and holding equipment for fish.

“This hatchery has played a crucial role in sustaining fish populations in our local waters since 1933, and the reopening of the facility will ensure that we can continue to provide a healthy environment for our fish while providing, diverse, high quality fishing opportunities for the anglers of the Commonwealth,” said DWR Fish Hatchery Superintendent Brendan Delbos at the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Make sure to read the upcoming September/October issue of Virginia Wildlife magazine for more information about the hatchery’s history and renovations.
