During our Biology class our teacher, Mr. Galicki ordered about 200 Chinook Salmon eggs taken from the Little Manistee River by the Michigan DNR.
He just recently picked up the eggs Nov. 7th at the Wolf Lake State Fish Hatchery near Kalamazoo.
We are patiently waiting for the eggs to hatch into sac fry. One fish is already in the process of slipping out of its gel like egg! But 17 of our eggs have already faded to white and perished.
Different students have been checking the water temperature (which is kept at 47 degrees F), pH level, chlorine, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, alkalinity and hardness about every other day since it does not really change much since the eggs have not hatched.
