Fish Hatchery, Sunderland, MA

This hatchery is quite different from the one we usually visit. The pools are layed out to resemble a natural waterway, and the permanent screens arched over the top support wildflowers and tall grass. The area is wooded and the paths are pleasant. On the down side, only two of the pools were inhabited by fish, so there was some disappointment. There was no fish food for sale there (that we noticed, anyways). Also in contrast to my experience at the McLaughlin Hatchery, there was a bit of an unpleasant odor. I noticed it when we first climbed out of the van, but quickly acclimated to it. It didn't really impinge on our visit - but it was there.
