Fish hatcheries and related facilities dealing with the research and raising of fish, usually run by governmental agencies, but may be academic or private, though not to be confused with commercial fish farming operations.
Expanded Description:

Fish hatcheries are facilities where a large number of fish are bred and raised in a controlled environment. Their purpose may be to provide stock for designated fishing areas, to preserve endangered species, to assist in overcoming navigational obstructions, for research and education.

Most hatcheries are sponsored by governmental agencies, but some are run by academic institutions or commercial concerns. These are, however, not to be confused with fish farms which raise fish for commercial consumption. Related facilities dealing with fishery research, science, health, etc. will be considered for inclusion in this category.

Instructions for Posting Waymark:

NAME: The waymark name MUST follow a specific format -- Name of the hatchery followed by the location, i.e. county, park, nearest town, state, province.

PHOTOS: At least TWO photos are required -- one view showing some major feature of the facility, and one showing a sign or lettering identifying the facility. Additional photos showing the scope of the facility are highly encouraged.. These must all be personally taken photos and entered into the waymark's photo gallery.

VARIABLES: These are provided as an easy way for you to communicate basic information about the facility you are documenting.

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category. If there is a disagreement, try to work it out with the evaluating officer, or appeal to the group leader, but we reserve the right to accept or decline a waymark based on our best judgement.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. Because of our international scope, we also acknowledge ENGLISH as our lingua franca. English will create the highest level of accessibility globally. All waymarks must have at least a short description in ENGLISH. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks, but one of the languages must be English. We have volunteer translators to help.

Relying on software or internet based translators, such as Babylon and Google Translate, may NOT yield accurate translations that are intelligible. Use these only when there is no alternative. Although we do not expect grammatical perfection, a waymark may be declined if there the English language is not understandable.
