Fort Richardson State Fish Hatchery

The Fort Richardson State Fish Hatchery is located on Fort Richardson, a U.S. Army post near Anchorage, Alaska. The hatchery sits on the banks of Ship Creek, just downstream of the Glenn Highway. The facility was built in 1958 by the U.S. Army to provide fish for post lakes. The Fort Richardson Hatchery is being phased out and production is being transferred to the new William Jack Hernandez Hatchery.
