  Rapid River Fish Hatchery
The Rapid River hatchery is located beside a tributary of the Salmon River, near Riggins.
The fish begin to mature by mid-August and the females are sorted for ripeness and spawned.
River water flows through the incubators during the entire incubation cycle, from fertilization to the swim-up fry stage (approximately one year).

The Klamath River fish kill of September 2002, when 68,000 salmon died because of low, warm water conditions on the lower river, is considered the largest of its kind in U.S. history.
River advocates and fishery biologists blame the fish kills on poor water management by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and on the continuing lack of flow and water temperature standards on the American, while federal officials claim that they are forced to balance the needs of different users in managing the river.
The fact that the fish died before spawning is a tremendous loss to the potential for fish restoration on the river, according to Felix Smith, board member of the Save the American River Association (SARA) and the federal wildlife biologist who was the whistleblower during the Kesterson Wildlife Refuge scandal of the early 1980s.

 Harvesting the River: Harvesting: Fish: Commercial Fishing -- Illinois State Museum
The decrease was attributable to the introduction of German carp, the increase in water from the Chicago Drainage Canal, sewage from that canal, and the leveeing of lands from 1900 onwards.
Fishing temporarily improved when the Chicago Sanitary & Ship Canal was built in 1900, causing a raise in the water level from the diversion of water from Lake Michigan.
At the peak of commercial fishing on the Illinois River, one-half to two-thirds of Browning, Illinois families, for example, were involved in fishing.

Every spring, usually in late April, anadromous fish, including the American shad, sea lamprey and Atlantic salmon, migrate upstream in the Connecticut River from their ocean homes to spawn.
Anadromous (ah-‘nad-rah-mus) means the fish are born in fresh water, mature in the ocean and return to the fresh water rivers of their birth to spawn.
When enough fish are in the area, the gates close behind them and nudge the fish toward the lift.

Both states have conducted angler surveys on the Red River to determine: the use of the river by residents and nonresidents; catch and harvest rates of various fish species; time of year and general location when harvest of fish was occurring; and a series of angler attitude questions.
In 1998 process of evaluating the impacts from opening the Red River to fishing in the spring began, prior to 1998 the Red River was closed to fishing which was prevent the over-harvest of walleye and sauger.
Spring fishing on the river from 2000 to 2004 included a series of size limits and possession limits to limit the number of walleye harvested and the harvest of large walleye.

 Sebasticook River Fish Passage Projects   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Historically, this productive river has supported large runs of sea-run (anadromous) fish species: American shad, river herring (alewives and blueback herring), striped bass, rainbow smelt, Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon, Atlantic salmon and American eel all have utilized the numerous and varied types of riverine habitats in the Sebasticook.
Restoration of anadromous fish has multiple benefits to not only our natural ecosystems, but also for society: they serve as important forage for other fish and wildlife species in both inland and coastal ecosystems, and have been a resource of commercial and recreational fisheries in Maine for hundreds of years.
In 1998, the Edwards Dam on the Kennebec River in Augusta was removed, permitting anadromous fish to migrate an additional 17 miles upstream to the lower Sebasticook River.

 [No title]
Some fish, including shovelnose sturgeon, gizzard shad, channel catfish, and smallmouth buffalo, use the main channel during the entire year; these fishes are suited for life in fast-flowing river conditions.
Furthermore, fish movements in the main channel may be affected by navigation locks and dams that permit barges to move up and down the Mississippi and Illinois rivers.
Fish movement and distribution also may be affected by the presence of navigation locks and dams, which provide migration barriers and alter the river for several miles upstream of their location.

 Fire Retardant Spill Results in Fish Kill on Fall River
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists' initial assessment indicates virtually all fish in about four miles of Fall River have died, and downstream effects to the Deschutes River are still unknown.
Kunkel said fish biologists set a small mesh seine across the mouth of culverts ahead of the spill and recovered a sample of dead fish that were traveling with the current.
Fish affected include hatchery rainbow trout, native redband trout and white fish, natural spawning brown and brook trout, and non-game fish.

The Oneida Lake Fish Cultural Station in Constantia is the largest, state-of-the-art walleye hatchery in the country and the first facility in North America intensively rearing large numbers of fingerling walleye.
The Salmon River Fish Hatchery, which began operation in 1981, is part of a major effort by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to meet stocking needs of Lakes Erie, Ontario and Champlain and their tributaries.
Destruction of habitat, over fishing, predation by an exotic parasitic fish called the sea lamprey, and numerous dams which prevented salmon from reaching spawning streams all led to the disappearance of these spectacular fish.

 AFRP - Upper Sacramento River wild fish (Chinook salmon) tagging. 
Target fish will be larger than 35mm fork length, anesthetized with MS-222 prior to tagging, adipose fin-clipped and then tagged using a Model MKIV tagging unit from Northwest Marine Technology, Inc. A proportion of tagged Chinook will be held to assess tag retention.
Estimates of contribution rates of marked fish to ocean and sport fishery are obtained through a regional database maintained by the Pacific Marine Fishery Commission.
By coded-wire tagging fall-run Chinook known to be naturally produced in the upper river we can learn about their movements and distribution in the Delta, contributions to ocean and sport fisheries, straying of adults and better understand the interaction of natural and hatchery produced fish.

In addition, there is no statistical correlation of fossil fish with tuff beds, little lateral change in fish densities or fish species in time-synchronous lithofacies (identifiable rock unit), and fish are almost as well preserved in organic-rich laminates as in laminates lacking much organic matter.
However, he does not appear to be referring to anything like the traumatic situation experienced by the fish in the Green River Formation, as evidenced by the extreme contraction of the muscles (tetany) evidenced in their fossilized specimens.

 Platte River State Fish Hatchery
Overview: The Platte River State Fish Hatchery was established in 1928 as a satellite rearing station and converted to the state’s main salmon hatchery in 1972.
Platte River water has been used in the past but is not a desirable source due to temperature extremes, resident fish populations carrying disease, and silt which collects in the rearing units.
The best times to see returning adult salmon in the Platte River are from mid September to mid November at the lower weir (located off Lake Michigan Road 2 miles northwest of M-22) and late September to mid October at the upper weir located at the hatchery.

CONCRETE, Wash. — Early and mid-February on the Skagit River was a slow, transitional period for this big, brawling steelhead river.
With hatchery fish mostly long gone, and its famous wild March monsters yet to show up in thoroughly good numbers, anglers were left with a fairly typical onesy-twosy experience on the river.
The wild fish coming into the Skagit are going to one of two places: they're either heading to the very upper reaches of the Skagit to spawn, or they're heading up to turn into the Sauk River to spawn.

“For fish such as shiners, shad, carp, paddlefish and sturgeon, the larval stage is a bottleneck in their life cycle,” said Reeves, a doctoral candidate in fisheries and wildlife who recently completed the second of three field seasons collecting larval fish.
The river’s sandbars, and the slow-moving, shallow water associated with them, have historically provided larval fish with the necessary habitat, but more than 90 percent of it has been lost through channelization and bank stabilization, said David Galat, MU associate professor of fisheries and wildlife.
Patton said that from preliminary data, fish spawning appears to be strongly associated with flow pulses in the lower Missouri River.
