Kootenay Trout Hatchery
We own and operate six major fish hatcheries that are located in Duncan, Abbotsford, Summerland, Clearwater, Fort Steele, and Vanderhoof. We also operate a trout distribution centre in Prince George and nine egg collection stations situated throughout the province. Every year, the hatcheries raise and release over eight million trout, char, and kokanee salmon into 800 lakes around the province. We also manage special recovery programs for endangered species such as white sturgeon in the Columbia and Nechako Rivers.
