William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery
The William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery in Anchorage, Alaska, —the largest indoor sport fish hatchery in North America— has received the first-ever Envision project award. The hatchery is the first completed project assessed using the Institute of Sustainable Infrastructure's new Envision sustainable infrastructure rating system. The HDR-designed project received an Envision Gold award.
The hatchery contains many sustainable features, including sophisticated recirculation technology that reduces by 95 percent the water and energy normally used by conventional hatcheries.
