9th School Salmon Release Guelph RCA

The video is a little close, I was thinking they would release the Salmon off of the dock & I would be a little closer but they decided to release them off the cement ramp & they were very close, hopefully I get some pictures & video sent from the school & I can post that too but here is what I have.

Last Chance to check the Salmon out LIVE releasing later this week:

The school`s have hatched them, cleaned & fed them for 6 months & they will soon be back in the wild to live their 3 years before returning to spawn, already looking at expanding the Program in the fall of 2016, if you have a school interested let me know & we can add them to our list.

5th School Release Walkerton District Community School

You sure would think it was foggy in Kincardine today it sounded like every student that toured the Lighthouse today was blowing the fog horn lol, Adults & students enjoyed the tour & made it to the top to look around, it was nice that the weather held off so they could enjoy it without the rain, lunch was at the Rotary park after the tours were done. 

There were lots of questions especially about the invasive species samples that we have.

Kincardine Trout Hatchery Tour

This is part of the tour the Students will see when they tour the Hatchery, it's hard to get much video or pictures when you are doing the tours by yourself so I did a walk through before the Students came back from the lighthouse tour enjoy, the year old Rainbows were released April 23-24 so we missed them. Fish mounts, Invasive Species, Rainbow Trout Eggs, Brown Trout, & the Waste water settling pond.
