Fish Culture Station
Location: West on Highway #210, 5 km from Fort Qu’Appelle.
The Fort Qu’Appelle Fish Culture Station has the capacity to rear as many as 60 million fish each year. This stock replaces fish populations in water bodies where winterkill has occurred or where natural reproduction is not successful. The station also stocks newly formed water bodies (reservoirs) and waters where natural reproduction cannot keep up with the fishing pressure. Stock can be used to extend the range of species, such as lake trout and arctic grayling, making them more accessible to anglers. A number of new species which do not occur naturally in Saskatchewan waters have been introduced. For more information, click here.
