Metro East Anglers have a community salmonid hatchery located in Whitchurch-Stouffville. The facility is completely volunteer run. If you are interested in getting involved, visit their Facebook page to get in touch. Activities include: fish assessment and care, stocking, tagging, fishway operation, and hatchery maintenance. This is a great opportunity to get involved and learn more about how salmonids are stocked in Lake Ontario. Whether you are able to visit for a few hours, or make a regular commitment, Metro East Anglers would love to have your support!
