Texas State Fish Hatcheries

Two hatchery trucks unloading fish Hatcheries comprise an important component of freshwater fisheries management at Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Hatchery-reared fish are used to establish new populations, enhance existing populations, support research efforts, and maintain fisheries in small urban reservoirs where natural production will not meet anglers' needs.
