Edenton National Fish Hatchery (NFH), operated by the U.S.Fish & Wildlife Service, has been producing fish for public use and restoration for well over a century. Established in 1898, the 63 acre hatchery is one of the oldest built in the historic port town of Edenton, NC at the head of the Albemarle Sound, 90 miles southwest of Norfolk, Virginia. Currently we raise Atlantic striped bass, American shad, lake sturgeon, channel catfish, white shiner and bluegill. Edenton National Fish Hatchery is one of fourteen hatcheries managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service in the Southeast Region. These hatcheries serve a vital role in the management of our fishery resources.
