Mission Statement

The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.

Description

The Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery was a pioneer in the fledgling science of salmon propagation when it began rearing salmon in 1896. During the past 100 years, the facilities and the propagation methods have changed dramatically and research is on-going. Today, approximately 16.7 million eggs are collected, with more 7.5 million young salmon released directly into the river each year. The remaining eggs are transferred to other facilities as eggs or fry. The Little White Salmon River provides the cold, clean source of river water in which salmon are incubated and raised for 6 to 18 months.
