Today we had Ms.Bates come and tell us about the salmon we will be incubating for the next couple months. She told us about the different things that salmon need. They are: Air, cold water, shade, food, and the redd. The redd is the nest the female salmon makes to keep her babies in.
After telling us those things she dissected a male spawner Coho salmon. She showed us the heart, spleen, liver, intestines, milt sac, and a couple more I can’t remember.
In our school we have a tank that is surrounded by foam for shade. Every year we get salmon eggs and keep them and care for them in our school. When they have reached the stage of fry we release them into Rough Bay creek. Right now they are in the Aelevin. We will take care of them until they are ready to be released.
