Aquatic Conservation Challenges

" The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is strengthening the National Fish Hatchery System to meet new and wider conservation demands of the 21st Century, to benefit fish and habitat and ensure the long-term future of sport fishing.

Our nation's waterways are naturally endowed with wonderfully diverse aquatic plants, animals and fish, but many species are in dramatic decline. Employing the very best sound science, the National Fish Hatchery System and its partners are putting new muscle behind an effort to reverse this alarming trend."
