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 trout eggs have arrived for our classroom trout hatching program. Thanks to Mrs. Reed’s husband, Mr. Reed, for driving to the Clackamas ODFW office to pick them up. We will begin to observe their daily development, collect and record data, and learn about trout and their ecosystems in the coming week. In a month or so when they reach the fry stage, we will release them in a nearby private pond. Stay tuned for more “developments!”
