Status and Trends - Hatchery
subbasinYakima Subbasin bar To enhance adult returns and provide harvest opportunities, fish are reared at the Levi George Supplementation and Research Facility (i.e., Cle Elum), Prosser, and Marion Drain Tribal hatcheries and their associated acclimation sites. Spring Chinook are produced at Cle Elum, while summer and fall Chinook are reared at Prosser and Marion Drain. Coho, a component of our reintroduction efforts, are reared at Prosser and its acclimation sites. Additional species cultured at Prosser and Marion Drain include Pacific lamprey, white sturgeon, and steelhead (kelts).
