The original DIPAC hatchery was established at Kowee Creek on Douglas Island in 1976. Kowee Creek Hatchery is a small facility built over one of Joe Juneau’s original gold mining adits. The hatchery was originally used to incubate up to 10 million pink and/or chum salmon and was later used as a research facility by the University of Alaska. The hatchery is no longer in use and the permit has been returned to the State of Alaska.
