ASHTON, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is closing a small hatchery in eastern Idaho amid declining revenue and increasing expenses.

The Rexburg Standard Journal reports that most of the fish have already been moved from the Ashton Fish Hatchery to other locations.

Ed Schriever, the department’s chief of fisheries, says the decision makes sense as the department faces tighter budgets. The hatchery is among the smallest in the state’s hatchery system, annually producing more than 250,000 fish.
