Opened in 1888, Mount Shasta is the oldest trout hatchery west of the Mississippi. During its many years of operation, the hatchery has raised several types of trout, salmon, arctic grayling, largemouth bass, sunfish, perch, catfish and sturgeon. Mount Shasta Hatchery has shipped trout eggs all over the world to places including Mexico, New Zealand, China, India, Pakistan, The Philippines and Bangladesh. It is believed that in more than a century of operation Mount Shasta Hatchery has produced more salmon and trout than any other hatchery in the world. Unlike most hatcheries Mount Shasta Hatchery still utilizes earthen ponds to raise catchable trout; one of the last California Department of Fish and Wildlife hatcheries to do so.
In 2016 IAS assessed Mount Shasta Fish Hatchery’s filtration needs and took the project from concept to engineered drawings and from engineered drawings to production, delivery and completion. We supplied a Trojan UV 3000Plus™ in-channel UV sterilizer and an F4-5T HEX™ Drum Filter with intelligent drum filter controls. For larger scale, high-flow and/or high-dose applications, the Trojan UV 3000 series of open channel water sterilizers provide a cost effective solution. Trojan open channel systems feature amalgam lamps, optional Acti-Clean wiping systems, flexible channel arrangements and advanced electronics to help ensure the biosecurity of any commercial/industrial system, including the system found today at Mount Shasta Fish Hatchery.
