Spawning Season is here!
Happenings at the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery
Great time to visit the hatchery! The hatchery is in peak season with 100s of chinook and coho in the stream and 1000s in the holding ponds! Last week 895,000 eggs were taken, 4,000 chinook were trapped and 426 spawned. Thirteen were sent upstream!
The hatchery has a self guided tour as well as an audio tour in five languages. Issaquah Salmon Hatchery is looking for volunteers to help with spawning, since we will have about 4-5 times the normal number of fish. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The FiSHOP gift shop is open on weekends, make sure to get your keepsakes, gifts and salmon souvenirs. The shop features native and local artisan work, and outdoor gear. Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (FISH) is always looking for partners, groups and corporations for riparian restoration projects along our shoreline. Email: email@example.com with inquiries.
