Research Center, Hatchery and Visitors Center Project

Portable Hatchery and Ponds - 2010

Architectural Drawings of the Proposed Research Center

The St. Lawrence River Walleye Association's goal is to enhance the St. Lawrence River fishery and promote tourism in Northern New York State by building a 5,100 sq.ft. research center which will house a hatchery and visitors center.  A 5-6 acre site is being sought on the banks of the river to accommodate 2 half-acre ponds, the research center and adequate parking.

In the interim, SLRWA has forged ahead, and in Spring 2010, volunteers successfully incubated and released 10,000-plus walleye from a newly built portable hatchery and maturation pond.


SLRWA was founded as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) so the efforts of the organization through fundraising and tournaments will allow for the ability of SLRWA to build and sustain a new research center, hatchery and visitors center on the St. Lawrence River near Waddington or Massena NY.
