DIPAC's Macaulay Salmon Hatchery in United States


5 STars I never knew what salmon did in their lifetie. It was incredible to behold the ladder. Who new salmon returned to their birthplace to complete their life cycle. Pretty amazing to witness.

Cool visit My wife and I were on a tour and one of the stops was the fish hatchery. It is set up very well for visitors to view the salmon ladders and holding tanks and also the hatch lings in huge tanks.

Awesome experience It’s off season so we made a reservation and Amanda gave us a wonderful tour of the hatchery. We actually saw eagles and seals just walking up the ramp to the entrance.
