Salmon Hatchery Dec 30 2010

After watching this I have no Idea how any fish would survive to be an Adult, this is well over 3 weeks ago they were all hatched and they are barely moving still, the current would push them down stream to be a very easy meal for something

Hey Guys

On Nov 16th I met Al at the Hatchery & he gave me a quick lesson on how to set the Salmon Egg Hatchery up for the School Program. Nov 17th I set the Aquarium up at Teeswater Hillcrest Central School in the Grade 2-3 class, I arrived in the middle of the afternoon to kids jumping up & down hollering there here, there here, I tried to settle them down by saying I just have the Aquarium & the Eggs wouldn't be there until Friday. Not sure if you have tried setting up an Aquarium with 2 dozen extra sets of hands but I managed, everything was hooked up by 4pm & running. Since there is Chlorinated it was to sit for 24 hours or more. Friday I met Garry 2pm at the Port Elgin hatchery to pick up the Eggs, packed the eggs in a jar in the cooler with a bit of Ice & headed to Teeswater, classes were over so I signed in & headed to the class 1 of the Students saw me with a Cooler & headed out to their Mother next thing I knew there was 3 boys & a Mother in the Class asking me question & wanting to help with the Eggs, on Nov 22 at 07:44 the Teacher e-mailed & said that looks soooooo cool & that the students would be doing computer work looking up salmon, Nov 23 E-mail saying the kids have been doing research & she ordered some books from Amazon, Nov 24 1 egg hatched by 8am 3 hatched by noon & 4 by the end of the day, Nov 25 I went to the school first thing & there was about half the eggs Hatched the Teacher is very impressed & Quite excited. She was at the board office last Friday & a lot of Teachers are asking how she got involved in this program, I'm not sure what will become of that for next year, I will be stopping in during class a bit & hopefully getting some more Pictures for the club. The class has already started a Scrap book with Pictures

Thanx For Now Richard Elliott Jr
