Could you imagine Issaquah without the salmon?

No? Neither could Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (FISH).

FISH is the result of many successful partnerships that formed after the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery was threatened with closure in 1992. Private citizens as well as community and business leaders joined forces to save this regional treasure. FISH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that today is supported by its members, the City of Issaquah, local businesses and service organizations.

“To advocate retaining and improving the historic Issaquah Salmon Hatchery and to promote watershed stewardship through education.” — FISH Mission

FISH Staff (l-r): Celina Steiger, Education Coordinator; Jane Kuechle, Executive Director; Lei Dietz, Volunteer Coordinator.
