Hatchery: Started ponding Alevin of hatched eggs which are then put them into trays then transferred to the tanks.  Some do not make it because of the shock of his procedure. However there is high success rate.  Some pit tagged alevin died and not sure why.  A study is being conducted to simulate river conditions where calcium buildup has been detected in alevin. This is a common occurrence in hatchery fish. It is not known why this happens. A number of studies are being conducted. Contact Bill for further information on these studies.
