The hatchery raises just over 130 million chum, king and coho salmon annually and is designed to allow visitors see the outside operations of an active hatchery. You'll learn about what it takes to raise salmon, the importance of the Alaska hatchery system, and the near shore marine environment that salmon share with other marine life. From mid June through October, you can watch adult salmon swim up a 450 foot fish ladder and gather into holding ponds until the fish are ready to reproduce. View baby salmon year round from a sky bridge and meet over 150 local marine species in the various aquariums and touch tanks.
