Located in historic West Barnstable, Massachusetts, Blue Stream Aquaculture is one of the oldest continually run trout hatcheries in the state. Brown, brook, rainbow and tiger trout are spawned and raised year round and are fed natural artesian diets. The fish are raised in both natural and man-made ponds, raceways and a hatch house where 700 to 800 gallons of water flows per minute. Water from the pristine, "free-flowing" wells is used multiple times through tanks and raceways. Waste is removed both naturally with a “healthy” micro-organism population, and mechanically to ensure low environmental impact.

Fish are raised in low-density sand bottom raceways and tanks and are fed food formulated for each life stage to give them all the vital nutrition they need to thrive. Through consistent monitoring and daily observation, there is no need for medication, hormones or antibiotics. Seed stock for the farm is produced on the farm, with a well designed “spawning“ program to ensure plenty of hatchlings each year to supply customers' needs and other farms interested in growing trout. Blue Stream Aquaculture starts with their own fish to minimize risk and ensure healthy fish for either stocking or as a farm to table product. With over 50+ years of aquaculture and engineering experience, the business knows how to deliver high quality, sustainable fish from fingerlings to value-added products.
