Backers of the D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Archives are trying to find out whether the Spearfish facility is again on the chopping black.
Officials with the nonprofit Booth Society say that they've filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's regional office in Denver and the national office in Washington, D.C.
Booth Society and hatchery officials learned in August that the service planned to close the Spearfish hatchery as well as others throughout the country. The service later offered a year's reprieve.
Sen. Tim Johnson told Booth Society officials recently that regional director Noreen Walsh indicated that the future of the hatchery is in jeopardy and the service is considering removing the archives.
