Did you know that, officially, we are known as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, instead of State of.... ? There are only 4 Commonwealths: MA, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Virginia. The MassWildlife has run a fish hatchery in Sandwich for a long time. It's free to visit and a very peaceful place to take a walk.
Looking down the entrance road to the fish hatchery.
I'm not entirely sure why a fish hatchery needs this much firewood.
These pools hold the large breeder fish. Different kinds of trout are raised for stocking in the rivers, streams, lakes and ponds around the area. I find it sadly ironic that they go through all this trouble to raise the fish only to be caught and eaten.
.25 will get you a handful of food pellets to feed to the fishies.
Pumps keep the water circulating.
