NOAA Fisheries comes through with major assistance for needed improvements at the hatchery! They got grant funding to pay for an aquaculture engineer to design a system to provide for water recirculation, sediment removal and filtration, and U/V sterilization to kill fungus and avoid infection. They also have gotten a $65,000 grant to help build the system. The final numbers have not been developed yet, but likely the needed upgrades will be $120,000 or more! Stay tuned to see how much help we will need from our donors and additional grant funding!
