A tour guide gives visors some history about the hatchery, and you can see the salmon in various states of growth. Inside you can see other fish in their aquarium and also purchase salmon products. I recommend the jerky!

Although I'm fascinated by fish when I'm scuba diving, I never expected salmon to be fascinating. But during the salmon run, they are jumping on top of each other and racing up the hatchery's ladders to spawn. The ladders were so full of busy salmon that it looked like rush hour traffic on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles -- except the salmon are really moving!
The Macauley Salmon Hatchery cost 7.4 million dollars to build. Since opening in 1989, it has helped create a surplus supply of wild salmon. The hatchery is allowed to incubate 121 million chum, 50 million pink, 1.5 million coho and 950,000 chinook salmon annually. The fascinating thing is that they imprint on the ladders and come back to the hatchery to spawn.

Alaska is truly a model in sustainable fishing, and after tasting wild caught Alaskan Halibut and Salmon, I can't imagine ever eating farm raised fish.
