Chinook Salmon Release

It was a little sad to seem them go, and they were a real good group of fish, but it was time to move on with their lives. Yesterday we released our 1,000 chinook salmon fry that we raised in our classrooms since October 23rd. The we]ather was great, for December, and certainly better than the below freezing temps we had last week. The water temperature was 37 degrees so it was chillier than the 52 degree water our chinook fry were used to, but they seemed to adjust fine. Below is a short video of our release day beginning with our students scooping them out of the incubator. Our next planned hatch will be rainbow trout in the winter of 2015!
