In a previous blog entry, “FOCUS Fishes for Life Skills Success“, we mentioned we had received 200 fish eggs from Farmington Valley Trout Unlimited as part of the “Trout in the Classroom” program. During our presentation, Carl Swanson of Farmington Valley Trout Unlimited mentioned that our fish eggs would begin hatching within 20 to 30 days of our presentation. We are very excited to report that last weekend, some of the eggs began to hatch! They are now in the alevin stage, where they feed from the yolk sac attached to their stomachs.
Keep checking back to see our progress!
