Currently Lummi Bay Hatchery releases 1 million coho juveniles and releases 500,000 fall chinook salmon. Another 500,000 fall chinook salmon juveniles are released from an acclimation pond located in Bertrand Creek.
The Lummi Bay Hatchery works cooperatively with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's Kendall Creek Hatchery for its coho program and with the Samish Hatchery of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Whatcom Creek Hatchery of the Bellingham Technical College for its fall Chinook programs.
The Lummi Bay Hatchery is a unique site that uses freshwater pumped from the Nooksack River and saltwater pumped from Lummi Bay. These two water sources allow culturists to rear the young salmon in freshwater and slowly convert to saltwater before releasing them into Lummi Bay to start their ocean journey.
