A few times during the trout hatching project, we need to do a partial water change to keep the ammonia levels down. Ammonia levels that are too high are harmful to trout.
Our chinook salmon alevins are starting to become quite busy in their little worlds. Activity is increasing everyday in both incubators. Ammonia levels have been a concern so we have changed out the water several times. Thanks to Mr. Segundo who has hauled in numerous five gallon buckets of water from our well pumphouse on several chilly mornings. You will note a clearing in the rocks. This is where we dumped in the new water from the buckets. It is interesting to see how the salmon alevins react to it. Stay tuned for more developments!
