Description

ĂŠEach winter, the tank is set up using eyed coho eggs delivered by float plan from the Wally Noerenberg Hatchery on Esther Island in Prince William Sound. Each month one of the 4-6th grade classes monitors the tank, collecting daily water temperature readings and tracking development of the eggs. Once the eggs hatch and the alevins develop into fry, staff from CRWP and the PWS Science Center teach the students how to feed the fry and help with regular water exchanges to keep the salmon healthy. At the conclusion of the school year, the 5th grade class releases the salmon at Fleming Spit.
