Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 46 and County Rt. 60, near Rome in Oneida County

NYS DEC operates 12 fish hatcheries and one fish pathology laboratory. Rome Hatchery is located in Oneida County about four miles north of the City of Rome.

The hatchery is one of DEC's largest, with annual production totaling nearly 160,000 pounds of brook, rainbow and brown trout. Hatchery staff play a major role in providing fish for airplane and helicopter stocking of remote waters. The Rome Fish Disease Control Center, also known as Rome Lab, is located on Rome Hatchery property. Staff maintain brood stock of disease-resistant strains of brook and brown trout, and maintain a laboratory where research activities and disease diagnosis can be conducted. Staff are heavily involved in testing numerous stocks of cultured and wild fish for the presence of parasites and pathogens.
