Makah National Fish Hatchery exists as a joint venture between the Service and Makah Indian Nation for the continued enhancement of Pacific salmon along Washington State's northwest coast. This program grew out of the need to restore and enhance fish runs due to surface water degradation and habitat loss created by timber harvest and human population growth and development. The hatchery is located on tribal land, with Olympic National Park’s picturesque Shi Shi beach and Hobuck Beach nearby. The hatchery annually raises and releases more than 1.7 million fall Chinook salmon, coho salmon, and winter steelhead, and allows on-site fishing with a tribal angling permit.
