E. Peter Steenstra -- Northeast Region
E. Peter Steenstra of Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery is a U.S. Navy veteran. He attended Photographer's Mate 'A' School at Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla., and upon graduation was assigned to the U.S. Naval Air Station in Keflavik, Iceland. While in Iceland, Peter took flights to Scotland and England to photograph NATO activities in the North Atlantic. Upon transfer from Keflavik, he was assigned to the carrier U.S.S. Independence, CVA-62, with the U.S. 7th Fleet, serving in the South China Sea and the South Pacific. While at sea, his duties included public relations and operations involving seven naval air squadrons aboard Independence. Following his years in the Navy, Peter taught in public schools for 10 years, and then attended graduate school at the University of Maine with a focus in environmental education. In 1995, Peter was hired by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service as an educator and visitor services specialist for Maine’s endangered sea-run Atlantic salmon program at the Maine Fisheries Program Complex. The complex comprises Craig Brook and Green Lake national fish hatcheries and the Maine Fishery Resources Office. Visitors to the Craig Brook visitor center include thousands of students per year who learn about the Atlantic salmon’s life cycle, natural habitat and role within their migratory ecosystems.
