The salmon are here, the salmon are here!

1300 Chinook salmon eggs were recently delivered to about 10 classrooms in the Bethel School District. These eggs come from the Leaburg Hatchery and will be raised in the classroom by the students. The participants will have to conduct daily pH, ammonia and dissolved oxygen tests to make sure the water is fit for the salmon survival. They will also have to make sure their tank stays very cold, around 45-50 degrees. If all goes well, each classroom should release about 100 salmon once they are developed. Stop in to your nearest 6th grade classroom to see their development over the next couple of months!
