D.C. Booth Fish Hatchery Seeking Museum Curator

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has posted a museum curator position for the D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Archives, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. A candidate is expected to be selected by mid-January.

The hatchery has not had a curator in over two years. The hiring announcement was somewhat surprising to hatchery director Carlos Martinez, as the hatchery has faced numerous closure threats over the past five years. However, Martinez was recently informed that U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials believed the hatchery serves an important role as a flagship facility for the agency.

The D.C. Booth Hatchery accommodates over 160,000 visitors each year and hosts nearly 15,00 artifacts in its archives.
