Brace yourselves for this week’s update, so far this year we have had a grand total of:
Chum fry: 171,821
Coho Smolts: 4972
Combined Trout: 46
I was very pleased to see a handful (1200) of fry in the box this morning amidst a swirling mass of smolts (710) instead of the other way around. I suspect that the fry numbers were much greater before we arrived as there were some very pregnant looking trout and smolts going through the box. Ah well, this year’s crop of coho should be stronger and healthier and therefore better able to survive once they get to the sea (as long as the seals don’t interfere).
