Trask Hatchery Re-Circulation Pumps

NCSSEF funds were used to purchase electric pumps for Trask Hatchery. These pumps were installed on the two largest rearing ponds. The pumps will allow hatchery personnel to re-circulate water through the ponds during high water events. This will reduce the amount of silt accumulation in the pond, which reduces cleaning time and maintains a healthier environment for the fish.  This project is especially beneficial to the smolts from the winter steelhead broodstock program, which are raised in these ponds over the winter months.
