About this Location

The Ed Weed Fish Culture Station is located in the picturesque island community of Grand Isle. The hatchery began raising fish in 1991, making it Vermont’s newest state fish hatchery. Lake Champlain is the facility’s water source and the coldwater and cool water fish reared a the hatchery are stocked back into the lake.

The Ed Weed Fish Culture Station is a great place to visit, featuring large aquariums in the visitor center and a self-guided tour. The hatchery is also the home of the Family Fishing Festival, held every summer on Free Fishing Day in June.
