Cheyenne - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has a new fish culture supervisor. Guy Campbell was selected as supervisor with over 20 years of experience in fish culture, eight of those with Game and Fish.

“I’m deeply honored and humbled to take on this role. Working alongside the outstanding men and women in the culture section and fish division, I hope to uphold and build on our nationally recognized fish hatchery system,” said Campbell. The Game and Fish’s, fish culture division is comprised of ten fish hatcheries and rearing stations across the state and a fish stocking program. These facilities raise and deliver more than 5 million fish to waters in Wyoming.

Campbell graduated from Washington State University with a bachelor’s degree in wildlife management emphasizing fisheries. His permanent fish culture career started in 2000 with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife at their state’s largest salmon hatchery, which raises over 400,000 pounds of fish a year. While working with that agency, he worked at a total of six facilities eventually managing both the Spokane and Colville Trout Hatcheries. Then in 2010 intrigued by Wyoming’s way of life and the technology being implemented with the hatchery system, he accepted the position of superintendent at the Dubois hatchery. After four years, he was then promoted to the assistant supervisor of the fish culture section.  As assistant, Campbell was in charge of statewide fish distribution, wild and captive brood spawning, egg incubation and the section’s database management to name a few duties.

Guy has a vast amount of experience in fish culture. He will bring energy and passion to an already exceptional fish culture system,” said Alan Osterland, chief of fisheries.
