Gaden Hatchery, on the Thredbo River near Jindabyne, is one of Australia's main centres for breeding and rearing of cold water sport fish.  It is a great spot for discovering that all fish of the same species look pretty much the same, apart from size. Four species of fish are produced at Gaden: Atlantic salmon, brook trout, brown trout, and rainbow trout. Visitors can view feeding of the big fish that come to the surface in the crystal clear display pone.  Be careful not to get too close - those fish are hungry and staff try to keep losses below 3 tourists each year. Guided tours of the hatchery are conducted from 10am daily. The tour, conducted by experienced Fisheries staff, who know the fish by name, includes the facility, breeding tanks, aquariums with the four species of fish and exhibits. A 12-minute video, presented in a 100 seat theatrette outlines the hatchery's purpose and operation.  If you are lucky you will catch the staff burlesque performance at the end of the film.
