A great way to see fish, some in small, some very large, but all fascinating to watch (even if they are in a man-made environment). This hatchery sits back in a grassy clearing of the Shawnee Forest, wide open and sunny -- a stark contrast to the dark, shady forest which surrounds it. The fish are healthy. Where else can you see huge catfish living in large milk cans in the water? Fish of all kinds are raised here and eventually find homes in one of many lakes in the area. At least until they're caught and eaten. That's why hatcheries are necessary, huh?
