The town of Plottier, just 15 km from Neuquén, has a center dedicated to the production of fingerling trout. An ideal place to visit with family and educational institutions to learn about the functioning of the fishery.
The main objective of fingerling production is to repopulate the aquatic environment of the province of Neuquén and the region. During the months of June and July is the spawning and November fingerlings are planted in Limay and Neuquén rivers, both activities can be witnessed by the general public. Are also released into lakes Marí Menuco and Los Barriales.
Since late 1991, the fishery of the city, also known as "Río Limay", is administered and managed by the provincial government. The complex produces about 75,000 fingerlings per year of rainbow trout, Patagonian silverside and perch (Creole trout).
The complex facilities were built in the 1920's, with the purpose of pumping and irrigation of the farms in the area. This quaint building with eclectic style was remodeled and equipped to give the current operation, where it has pools of cement, a hatchery and nursery. There is also an interpretive trail that guides visitors around the place.
