The alevin are getting so big!

Watching the Alevin grow is amazing! They are all, with the exception of three, seeming to thrive in the tank. Many are even getting to the top of the tank, but then plummet down after using all their strength and energy to get to the top. One has a curled tail and swims in circles on the bottom and two have a clear bubble surrounding their yolk sac. The three aforementioned alevin do not swim quite like the rest. Overall, everything else is going great! Check out the kids' blog posts to see pictures and videos!

The three in question tend to stay close together in the center of the tank while the rest gather crazily in the corners.

Amazing Alevin!

We have an incredible amount of alevin in our tank! So far we have lost only five eggs and it looks as though we might have a few more that won't hatch. Please be sure to check out the Salmon Cam which is now embedded at the bottom of the page.
