Mission:

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. 
 

  

(Fisheries staff collect salmon for broodstock needs at Chief Joseph Hatchery.)

















(Sueanne Timentwa, Tech II for CTFW, uses an ultrasound machine to detect if Chinook salmon are male or female.)

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.  For more information on Chief Joseph Hatchery, go to:
