Science: Releasing the Salmon

posted May 29, 2013, 12:41 PM by Sue Hersey
Today we took a trip to the Union River to release the salmon fry we've been raising in the classroom.  We each had a turn to release a cupful of fry into the river.  Then we drove to the Green Lake Fish Hatchery and had a tour of the facility where millions of salmon are raised.  It was interesting to see the huge holding tanks outside and to also have a chance to see bigger salmon inside the hatchery.  It has been interesting to learn about the life cycle of the Atlantic Salmon.
