The money for the Ballarat Fish Hatchery – established in 1870 – will enable the not-for-profit to improve water quality and better manage temperatures, ensuring improved conditions for trout raised at the site.

A report on the grant, says the state money is being matched with $33,495 from the hatchery and some $32,000 worth of in-kind labour for the project.
