Virus ruins steelhead eggs at Bogachiel hatchery

Forks, Washington (AP) Feb. 2010


The state Fish and Wildlife Department plans to destroy about 250,000 winter steelhead eggs at the Bogachiel (BOH’-guh-sheel) Hatchery because of a fish virus, called IHN.

Regional manager Ron Warren says the virus was recently discovered in returning adult steelhead, and the eggs will be destroyed as a precaution.

To help make up for the loss, about 130,000 steelhead eggs will be transferred from a Makah Tribe hatchery to the Bogachiel hatchery near Forks.
