Cannery Creek

The Cannery Creek Hatchery (CCH) is a state-owned hatchery built in 1978 by the ADF&G Fisheries Rehabilitation, Enhancement and Development Division as a pink and chum salmon hatchery.  It is located in Unakwik Inlet, Prince William Sound, approximately 40 miles east of Whittier.  The hatchery is operated under a special use permit with the United States Forest Service. PWSAC manages and operates the facility for ADF&G under a 20-year professional services agreement at no cost to the State.  PWSAC assumed management and operational control of the hatchery in 1988.

CCH is currently permitted for 187 million pink salmon eggs annually.
