With the fantastic weather in full swing we took a short trip (about 4 miles) to look at the Nashua National Fish Hatchery best betta aquarium. It appears to be a really happening place — I ┬áthink we were the only ones there. Anyway, it was still pretty cool. We saw some great looking rainbow trout and Atlantic Salmon. Those salmon look impressive and it made me want to catch one! This fish hatchery supports Atlantic salmon, American shad and other aquatic species restoration efforts in the Merrimack River and other rivers. Each year the Nashua National Fish Hatchery utilizes approximately 1,300 Atlantic salmon for egg production. Once spawned, the domestic fish are surplus to program needs and are released into the Merrimack River for the largest directed Atlantic salmon fishery in New England.
