Abstract: Engineering considerations for the design of hatchery systems for warmwater fishes are presented in this paper. The material is presented as it relates to specific unit operations or activities in a hatchery. Topics covered include aspects of water quality, water delivery systems, impoundment types, and water conditioning. The material is Generally applicable and is not specific to a particular level of technological sophistication, or investment, or to a particular species. Application of the General principles mentioned to specific situations is dependent on the requirements for a particular installation.
