    A. E. Wood Fish Hatchery is located along the banks of the San Marcos River. This state-of-the-art facility specializes in rearing fingerling sportfish for stocking into more than 300 Texas reservoirs. The 33,000-square-footbuilding houses intensive culture operations. It includes a modern incubation room, shipping and holding troughs, and production raceways. The building also houses a complete laboratory capable of water quality testing, genetic identification, fish disease diagnosis and treatment, and law enforcement forensic techniques.

There is also a 9.5-acre storage reservoir, two wastewater retention ponds, and a zooplankton production pond.
