Enhancement and rehabilitation are applications of aquaculture that focus on a (or many) particular species of fish and supports their populations through the spawning and hatching process within a fish hatchery. These facilities can be relatively small; however, have the potential to make large positive impacts within the targeted ecosystem. Many communities are aligning with this sort of model in their own communities to enhance those fish species that they have strong traditional and economic ties, or with species that are under pressure or at risk thus requiring intervention. Enhancement and rehabilitation can be very rewarding and a socially bonding experience for the community, while ensuring these species have the support needed to secure their place for generations to come. When managed correctly, these facilities can support community’s commercial, recreational or sport fishery.
