The Great American Hatchery Road Trip – D.C. Booth National Fish Hatchery and Archives

June kicks off a summer long celebration of the 150th anniversary of the National Fish Hatchery System. As part of our celebration, we’ve created a series of road trip blogs that crisscross the country highlighting national fish hatcheries that are more than 100 years old! Buckle those seatbelts and join us each week for Road Trip Tuesday as we take you on the Great American Hatchery Road Trip!

This week’s road trip stop, D.C. Booth National Fish Hatchery and Archives!

Established in 1896, D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Archives serves to protect and preserve our nation’s fishery records and artifacts while still raising and stocking trout in regional, Tribal, and military waters. The hatchery also houses the National Fish and Aquatic Conservation Archives, has a museum and other historic buildings to tour, is on the National Register of Historic Places and serves as a cultural and educational resource. It is one of the oldest operating hatcheries in the country dedicated to fish culture and resource management.
