CASE STUDY: Improving Water Quality at Iron Gate Fish Hatchery, CA

The Iron Gate Hatchery in Hornbrook, California is a salmon and steelhead hatchery that releases fish back to the Klamath River. Due to the presence of the fungus Saprolegnia sp and bacteria, hatchery yield is thwarted due to disease. Poor water quality supports an environment favoring these fish pathogens and as a result, hatchery managers must produce 10,000,000 eggs to release 6,000,000 fish annually.
