Input it catches your attention the hundreds of thousands of salmon which are trying to climb through the locks of the farm and others who are back in the same and look for his last breath in nearby coastal areas. He device of the farm makes that, by its instinct, them salmon climb until it plant, where them females are stripped of their ROE that will be incubated conveniently, as is explains in them panels that vas watching in the travel free and well planned that have for them visitors. Subsequently these fingerlings are returned to the sea at different ages, depending on the type of salmon. It is a way to repopulate the fauna salmon which, although it seems inexhaustible, the number of fishermen who come to Alaska to fish them, makes this necessary. Striking, as in other parts of Alaska, everything is designed to facilitate visiting tourists without bureaucratic or economic obstacles (free visit), resulting in a benefit to the community. We did not see the inside of the farm to come by the afternoon, or bears, but by notice posters, must be some regular visitors that at the time we visited the area must be tired of eating salmon, judging by the number of them you can pick up even with the hand... In short, a visit almost obligatory if you pass by ValdezView original
5 star for sure. This place is amazing. You can watch over the salmon is such close distance. All four of us liked this place so much that we visit the Hatchery four times within three days. We did not see bears but there are salmon group, sea otter and even four sea lions in distance. Especially if your visit is in the early morning, the fog makes harbor so pretty that you can make a post card with it.
Very cool to see the salmon and all the other wildlife they attract; sealions, bears, eagles. Also a beautiful view when you walk the trail behind it.
A very cool place. 👍🏻
Great place to see salmon trying to get into the hatchery to spawn. Did a tour of the hatchery 10 years ago or so, and that was interesting as well. Don't know if that's still available or not. Because of the many fish here, it's a good place to watch for seals as well. Have seen brown bears around too, so keep your eyes peeled.
No fish when I went, but supposedly it's very cool when there is
