More About Alevin

 

Ali and Cole shared this on the broadcast for this week's salmon report. Our current stage is alevin, which is characterized by a yolk sac that the salmon get nutrition from. They spend their time trying to burrow into the gravel at the bottom of the tank. They would be doing the same thing in their natural habitat. We are going to keep the black cloth over the tank to simulate the darkness of the gravel bed in the stream.
