Salmon Arrive!

Today we took delivery of more than 100 wild salmon eggs! Very exciting! Our aquarium has been set up and running for days in preparation for today's precious cargo.

We'll keep them in the classroom till about the second week of April (so they get past the high-mortality stages of egg and alevin into the relatively safe phase (fry) where their survival is more likely).

See pictures and short video posted here.
