Fillmore Fish Hatchery - The Signal

Fillmore Fish Hatchery

Robledo shows how fish are placed in a truck for transport. Fish can travel in a truck up to seven hours. Hatchery employees cool the water to about 50 degrees instead of the usual 60 degrees to make transport easier on the fish. The Fillmore Fish Hatchery, along with the Mojave River Hatchery, supplies all of Southern California's lakes, and some streams and rivers, with varieties of trout. Katharine Lotze/Signal
