William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery
Construction associated with the William Jack Hernandez Sport seafood Hatchery ended up being finished in June of 2011. Based in Anchorage during the intersection of Reeve Blvd. and Post path, this completely enclosed, recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) based center utilizes the very best available technology to save water and minimize warming demand when it comes to manufacturing of Chinook and coho salmon, rainbow trout, and Arctic char.
Each year with over 100 rearing tanks, there is space for production of more than 6 million sport fish.
