Student Posts from Belle Sherman Elementary

Right now our trout are alevin. Even so, they are starting to grow fins and swim more. Their yolk sacs are almost gone! They are all developing stripes. Three of them are dead. Different classes are coming in to test the water. For a while the alevin were one big clump in the corner of the basket. Now they are all over. In a few weeks, we will release the trout into the vast tank. I am looking forward to that. ~ Laurel

Our young trout were born in a hatchery and were brought to us by Bill on Nov. 3 and are growing fast. Sadly, over 10 fish have died. On the other hand, the ones that have lived are growing fishes and are turning a darker color. Hopefully, they will grow in peace. ~ Tomer
