Fish Hatcheries
Fish hatcheries are essentially regulated facilities that fertilize fish eggs and fry so they can be raised. These are sometimes government owned, and others are private farms or hatcheries. The purpose of these facilities is to increase the fish population in freshwater ponds, lakes, and streams. There are a number of different fish species, such as trout, cod, betta, clown and guppies. While some of these fish are freshwater species, others belong in a saltwater environment. As you may know, fish hatcheries are located all over the country. Even fish that are kept in aquariums, fish tanks, or koi ponds are often raised in a hatchery facility. This includes tropical discus species, betta Siamese fish, guppies, and neon breeds. Typically a filter is used to keep the water clean in a tank. Once fish eggs are fertilized and then raised, they are sent to local pet stores for people to buy, and released into rivers and ponds. It is important for these trout, koi, and guppies to be placed in the proper environment, so they can live and grow. When fish are raised in state or federal hatcheries, they also need to be fed the right kind of food in order to grow healthy and strong. The best way to obtain more information on fish hatcheries and farms is by going online for additional research. This is a convenient way to access the official websites of state and private hatcheries all over the country. You can also visit a local hatchery in order to get more specifics and details on this large business.
