TFH - Tucannon Fish Hatchery

Status:   Active - Non-Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 2/4/2012 12:00 AM

The Tucannon Fish Hatchery site is located at the Tucannon Fish Hatchery Adult Trap and Water Intake System on the Tucannon River, at River Kilometer 59.4. The site consists of six flat plate antennas (two rows of three antennas each) upstream of the weir, two antennas were in the fish ladder and four flat plate antennas (two rows of two antennas each) were installed approximately 400m downstream of the weir. The antennas in the fish ladder and downstream of the weir were added in December 2016 during a site overhaul that also included replacing the FS1001M transceiver with the IS1001-MC and the original 6 antennas. The site is connected to AC power and also includes a Campbell Scientific CR1000 data logger and remote communication via a satellite modem.
