Warm Springs National Fish Hatchery was authorized by Congress in 1898 and established in 1899. Warm Springs National Fish Hatchery is co-located with a Fish Health Center and a Fish Technology Center in Warm Springs, Georgia. Located within the Apalachicola, Flint, Chattahoochee watershed, this 56 acre warmwater hatchery has 39 ponds totaling 18.23 acres of water. The hatchery also utilizes tank culture systems for many culture operations. Species on station include Gulf Striped Bass, Lake Sturgeon, Sicklefin Redhorse, Alligator Gar, freshwater mussels, Gopher Tortoises, and Gopher Frogs. We cooperate and coordinate our program activities with partners that include tribal nations, Federal agencies, universities and multiple state conservation agencies. The species raised here are vital to the fishery resources and upland ecosystems of the Southeastern United States and the Gulf Coast. New programs are added as recovery/restoration needs arise.
