Hillcrest School Chinook Salmon Hatchery

Stopped into one of the Schools today to drop off some chemicals they were low on, students came over to talk and continued to get ready for recess. I manually pushed the auto feeder while I was there, the salmon turned into piranhas lol, so I increased the feedings, Monday I start releasing the school salmon it will be the last step on their journey to Lake Huron, they will stay there for the next 3 years until they come back to Spawn & we get eggs from them to continue the cycle, unless someone is fortunate enough to catch them. Tight Lines.

Immaculate Conception School in Formosa had a problem after a power outage as the chiller pump lost it's prime and didn't restart, Walkerton District Community School needed more Prime chemical to help remove the chlorine from the water, Teeswater Hillcrest Central School needed more food to get them through the rest of the year and Wingham Sacred Heart School also need more food they are all growing nicely and it won't be long before we star releasing them.
