Crystal Lake Hatchery manager, Loren Thompson, says warmer waters are doing well unto young hatchery salmon.
The early reviews are positive for equipment installed at the Crystal Lake hatchery on Mitkof Island, 18 miles south of Petersburg. Last year the hatchery installed a heat exchanger to provide warmer water for young salmon.
