New hatchery at Green Bay’s The Farmory aimed at replenishing yellow perch supply | #wearegreenbay.com#

The Farmory in Green Bay is on a mission to replenish the perch supply in Northeast Wisconsin and a new yellow perch hatchery unveiled Monday is set to help improve the population. According to the Wisconsin DNR, the number of yellow perch has been on the decline in the Great Lakes since 1988. The new state of the art hatchery, which is also designed to be environmentally friendly, is a step to reviving the yellow perch. “These are fully recirculating systems, so we’re not having to waste a lot of water. These systems are contained, and the fish stay healthy, and it’s a bio-secure environment,” says Claire Thompson, Executive Director at the Farmory. CSET Dean John Katers was one of the guest speakers. Source: New hatchery at Green Bay’s The Farmory aimed at replenishing yellow perch supply | #wearegreenbay.com#
