Alevin Development -- Two weeks old!

This is the two week old photo of our alevin in the tank outside of the library.  As you can see, their bodies are developing, lengthening and becoming darker.  Their orange/pink yolk sacs are getting smaller.  Eventually they will be absorbed into their bodies.  Don't worry about the little guy at the very bottom of the shot.  While he is quite buried in the gravel, this is extremely normal for salmon.  he will work his way out eventually.
