Juneau resident Dale Young applied for a permit to build a hatchery in three phases that would have up to 60 million green eggs.
“Green eggs are the initial fertilized stage, so right at the egg take or spawning event, those are called green eggs,” said Sam Rabung, the Hatchery Program Coordinator for Fish & Game. He says only the first phase of the project seems permittable right now. “A combined total of 3 million green eggs only, and nothing implied for future increases.”
Rabung says increases could be allowed but that Young would need to come back to Fish & Game and a study of many years of returning salmon would need to happen.
