Slide show - Rearing Release

  • The incubation room contains 150 incubators and 47 fry rearing tanks.
  • The incubators receive pathogen-free water from springs.
  • In the incubators, embryos mature in artificial substrate called saddles.
  • Fry can volitionally migrate from incubators into ponds, which limits handling of the fragile fry.
  • Sockeye fry in a rearing pond.
  • Sockeye fry are fed just enough to sustain them until they are released into the river.
  • Fry are transferred from ponds directly into the river or into a transport truck for release down river.
  • The transfer of fry into the tanker truck for release downriver.
