The Wyoming Game and Fish Department currently maintains ten fish hatcheries and rearing stations. These facilities are an integral part of our efforts to provide quality fishing, native species restoration and fisheries management. The hatcheries are scattered across the state, some in remote locations. They deal with a complex issues, including water management, predators, production management and disease treatment and control.
In addition to hatching and raising fish from on site brood stocks, the culture section includes a spawning crew. Throughout the year, this 2-man crew monitors and spawns wild stocks of fish and transports them to a hatchery for raising. The Distribution crew is responsible for transporting fish from the hatcheries to their destination waters.
