How has the salmon hatchery affected Issaquah?
The salmon hatchery has made Issaquah the destination for those interested in the life cycle of the salmon and its effects on the environment. And of course, the hatchery has become a prime destination for Salmon Days attendees. Threats to the continued existence of the hatchery brought together a unique coalition of concerned citizens as Friends of the Issaquah Hatchery, or F.I.S.H. Continued improvements to the hatchery only enhance its status as a center for education and a unique centerpiece for a suburban town.
