Call ahead to this attraction and make sure that you talk to someone for guidance.We made the trek during operating hours. A vehicle was present, but otherwise occupied, I'm guessing. The literature available was incredibly helpful and we were able to peek into the tanks enough to figure out what was the facility was working on.

We were greeted with a person asking us if we wanted to see the surroundings. We first went in to see... More

If you're into wildlife or marine sciences it's a nice little detour if you're in the area. There's not a lot to look at but it's entertaining for what it is. I'll take my granddaughter next time we come Nashua.

Apparently the hatchery is out of the salmon business. The fish runs are canvas'd over and we only found 2 windows into the actual runs. Some fish are in there but there is only 1 main sign and no sign of any employees. Not a very interesting place to visit right now.

Its worth a stop to check it out. I liked seeing the different size fish and love that they stock the local streams. I hope this never ends.

It was interesting to bring the grand kids to show them a 4 foot salmon that would soon be released into the Merrimack. Who knows that this place even exists? Interesting but very quick to view.
