In Whitehorse, a fish hatchery is used to restock a number of salmon bearing creeks upriver of the Whitehorse dam. The salmon are released every spring into the creeks and these hatchery salmon are used as a type of compensation for the salmon fry who die passing through the dam on their migration to the ocean.

At his stage in their development they are called Alevins.
