What a great place to see sturgeon!! Our tour guide was so informative showing us how they keep our Great Lakes healthy and well stocked. We really loved setting the sturgeon and learning about their history and life cycle.

We have been to several fish hatcheries, but this is the best one. We arrived just in time for a guided tour of the facility which was very educational. I highly recommend this place for a visit.
