Coors, distributors improve hatchery.

Coors Pure Water 2000 campaign and South Dakota distributors have donated an additional $15,000 to the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Foundation to improve Blue Dog Lake State Fish Hatchery, located near Waubay.

The donation marks the final year of Coors' three-year commitment to the hatchery, totalling more than $40,000. To date, Coors' funds have helped build a new pond aeration system at the hatchery which has resulted in increased fish rearing productivity for statewide fishing programs.

"Coors and South Dakota distributors are proud to help impact game fishing statewide," noted Dick Larkin, Coors division manager. "The new pond aeration system will produce an additional 435,000 fingerling fish each year at the hatchery, including 400,000 walleye, 10,000 muskie and 25,000 bass."

"Clean water at the hatchery is an integral part of this process," explained Jack Merwin, executive director of the Department of Game, Fish and Parks Foundation. "The new aeration system helps keep the water fertile by producing a constant supply of dissolved oxygen to the fingerling fish and pond organisms. Thanks to Coors, the aerated water helps produce healthier fingerlings that have a greater chance of survival when they are returned to the wild."

Coors' support of the hatchery began in 1990 when piping, pumps and power were installed in 10 of the two-acre rearing ponds. During the next two years, the aeration systems were extended to the remaining 28 rearing ponds.
