Description

This video tells the history of Alaska's salmon hatcheries and describes present-day procedures and operations. In Prince William Sound and other Alaska fishing areas, the release of healthy young salmon into the ocean has resulted in high returns of adult salmon. Hatcheries have helped stabilize the up-and-down cycles of wild salmon runs.
