If you answered yes to this question, keep reading! The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Division of Sport Fish will be releasing a 25-minute behind-the-scenes tour video of the WJHSFH. The video highlights the six major fish rearing areas within the hatchery, and covers the advanced fish life support systems in the facility that allow for the production of over 4 million fish per year to support sport fish enhancement throughout the state.
