The Jordan River National Fish Hatchery (NFH) was established in 1963. Our missions are to rear lake trout as part of Great Lakes Restoration Program; provide environmental education; manage the M/V TOGUE, an 85-foot, 175-ton vessel used for offshore release of nearly all lake trout stocked in Lake Michigan. Over 7,500 visitors come every year and the hatchery provides fishery education and hatchery tours.
