53 Salmon Alevin Hatched!

Pear Tree Education is happy to announce that 53 salmon eggs have hatched successfully!

Fisheries and Oceans Canada provided Pear Tree with 55 salmon eggs in the middle of January.

Sadly, two eggs didn’t survive. However, so far, 96% of the salmon are okay!

Check out the photo below of the salmon in their alevin stage. As you can see, they carry their red egg sack, which is their source of nutrients until they become salmon fry.

Fingers crossed that they rest of these lovely creatures survive to be released into the wild in April!
