(Voluntary Salmon Hatchery)

The wild Waitaki River salmon population is in serious trouble. Something has to be done to enhance the salmon population.

The Waitaki Fisherpersons decided they would take action.  Realising Fish and Game were not in a position to ameliorate the situation, they decided to do something themselves under the guidance of Fish and Game.
