Salmon in the Classroom Update

As part of the Salmon in the Classroom program, ASH received 150 salmon eggs in November. The eggs became alevin, feeding off yolk sacs, and are now fry, eating and swimming freely. They are like toddlers, with the next stage being parr. Watch social media for additional updates on our salmon!
