We're very fortunate to be a part of the Fish in Schools programme at enrich@ILT. The aim is to give young people the opportunity to raise salmon from the egg stage to fingerlings in the school environment. The salmon eggs are supplied by Fish and Game Southland and are from the North Canterbury hatchery. We have 50 eggs in our tank and it will be up to our students to monitor their growth and the water quality.
We would like to thank Cohen and Richie from Fish and Game for setting up the salmon tank and sharing a presentation with our students.
