It is with a heavy heart and deep sorrow that we report the passing of our dear friend, co-worker, and dedicated teacher, Gary Bergstrand. His kind heart, quiet demeanor, and smiling face is missed already.

We will provide updates regarding arrangements once we learn of them. It is a very sad day today here at NR.

NCRAC Conference 2016

[03/15/16]   We just returned yesterday from a very exciting trip to the NCRAC conference in Wisconsin. It was a fantastic trip and the students enjoyed it. Photos to come.

[03/05/16]   Hocking College is closing for spring break from 7-11 March 2016. As for the hatchery, we are also closing except for checking on fish and basic maintenance operations. The hatchery will officially reopen on 15 March as we are going to the NCRAC conference in Wisconsin from 11-14 March. Thank you all for your support and patience. Please message us here if you have any questions at all.

[02/06/16]   We had a busy week as this is the time of year for conferences and learning about new techniques and new regulations at conferences. Jan 29-30 we were at the Ohio Aquaculture Association's annual conference and yesterday (5 Feb) we were able to attend the Ohio Fish and Wildlife Management Association conference. Loads of good info and networking opportunities at both!

Thanks to everyone that helped make this award happen! We couldn't do what we do without fantastic students and supporters. Hocking College School of Natural Resources

[10/03/15]   Another shrimp season is in the books! Thanks to the Athens county community for another successful year even though our harvest was a bit down this year. Special thanks to John Gutekanst and Joe Bell!

[09/29/15]   Our first shrimp harvest was a bit low on numbers, but they all are pretty uniform in size. Hopefully more people can make it out for the last harvest of the season on Friday.

[09/25/15]   TODAY IS SHRIMP DAY!!! We look forward to seeing everyone here at the hatchery.

[09/18/15]   We are a week out from the first of two shrimp harvests! Make sure that you share the event post that we made and invite your friends. The sale will be help following the harvest.

[09/01/15]   We are into our second week of classes here at Hocking this week. After sampling our shrimp they are close to the same size they were last year. Tentatively our harvest dates are 25 Sept and 2 Oct 2015.

[06/16/15]   As of the beginning of this month our shrimp have been stocked and are happy in their ponds. We also have a new intern that is fitting right in.

[04/21/15]   With Spring semester counting down quickly, we are looking for our next graduate intern. Interested students should be graduates of Hocking College with a degree in NR (preferably fish), and willing to work in a challenging environment. Contact either Mike Miltner or Stacey Priest to express interest in the position.

[12/17/14]   As many of you know, Hocking is shutting down for two weeks as of Monday, 22 Dec. This means that the hatchery will be closed as well. We are going to be in to check on the fish, but we will not be fielding any phone calls or the like. Feel free to email here if you have any questions as this page will be monitored. Thank you all, and have a happy holiday season!

[09/03/14]   We are preparing for this years shrimp harvest. We have 2 ponds this year and the harvest will be split over 2 weeks. The dates are 26 Sept and 3 October with the trip to the farmer's market on the 4th.
