Coho salmon return to Orca!

Today was a glorious day for Orca! We picked up our 2nd annual batch of Coho salmon eggs. 260 salmon eggs were put in our carefully prepared tank (45 degrees and a 7.1ph level). Last year we released them into Lake Washington from our designated spot in Seward Park. Hopefully we can repeat this and drop them in again on Earth Day 2011! Students will be learning about salmon life cycles and habitats. Come check the eggs out in the greenhouse!
