Thursday November 13, 2008

Hello All,

Bill came out to our classroom yesterday. He showed us a PowerPoint presentation on the trout eggs we have, where they came from and what we will expect in the future. It was exciting. This morning we started working on developing stream habitat drawing to give our alevin a better scene to look at rather than a blue wall.

Tank Report: Today, the temperature on the chiller was 53 degrees and the digital thermometer read 53.4 degrees. The ammonia and ph levels were good. The pump and filter were working poperly. We haven't found any dead trout yet. We have caught a few alevin escaping the breeding net and disappearing into the gravel. One of us noticed that a small group of alevin were huddled in the corner where the outflow pipe comes out.
