Eagle Fish Health Laboratory
Fish and Game hatcheries produce and stock over 22 million fish every year across Idaho. Most are raised from eggs to the size of a finger, called fingerlings. Other fish are released after they grow 10 to 12 inches long. To produce this number of fish, hatcheries need to be efficient and healthy environments.
The Eagle Fish Health Lab makes sure the processes used to raise hatchery fish are good for the fish and for the anglers who will one day catch one on the end of their line.
