Federal officials say the D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Archives in South Dakota is again on the chopping block.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says it is considering relocating the archives from the Spearfish facility out of state because of budget priorities.
D.C. Booth was one of several fish hatcheries that the federal agency intended to close nationwide last year. Congress later instructed the department to not close any hatcheries.
U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson recently told the Booth Society that federal officials have indicated that the future of the hatchery is in jeopardy.
The federal agency could relocate the archives to its National Conservation Training Center in West Virginia.
