The Fish & Wildlife Department’s overall goal is to maintain and protect viable populations of native and desired non-native species of fish and wildlife, and their supporting habitats, while providing sufficient numbers to meet the cultural, subsistence, recreational and economic needs of the tribal membership.
CJH uses an automated fish system that is used to sort, clip and tag juvenile salmon. The system can process over 60,000 fish in an eight hour period.
(Approximately 200 students from area schools toured CJH for the Army Corps Earth Day event on April 24, 2014. Students went to the hatchery building to see small salmon fry, picked up educational brochures and watched videos on the tour).
Chief Joseph Hatchery is a state-of-the art facility that was built to increase spring, summer, and fall Chinook salmon in the Okanogan and Columbia Rivers. The hatchery will produce up to 2.9 million Chinook fry annually and will provide salmon for tribal ceremonies, subsistence needs for tribal members, and increase recreational fishing opportunities for all. The $50 million hatchery was completed in May of 2013 and is located in Bridgeport, Washington next to Chief Joseph Dam.
