The Quinebaug Valley Fish Hatchery in Moosup is the biggest fish hatchery in the state of Connecticut.
The hatchery has released around 300,000 trout and plans to release another 100,000 trout by Memorial Day.
The fish hatchery located at 145 Trouth Hatchery Road in Moosup is open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The hatchery offers tours of the operation.
Fish are raised over the course of 18 months from an incubation stage to a sorting stage and eventually released to the hundreds of lakes, rivers, and streams across Connecticut.
