The hatchery produces more than 2 million fingerlings (young fish 3-5 inches long) and close to 1 million yearlings (fish one year old or over).

Residents viewed the many displays and exhibits inside the hatchery as well as learning about the spawning process and watching salmon jumping the fish ladder before having a picnic lunch at the pavilion.

The outing was one of several off-site activities that Morningstar Residential Care Center, 17 Sunrise Drive, provides for its residents.
