Our Chinook Salmon are about 3 inches in length. Their black and grayish stripes are blending in nicely with their environment. Theses Chinook Salmon are very active reminding me of how a 3 or 4 year old behaves. The water in the tank has gone up by one degree reading at 54 degrees. The water in the tank is very clean due to our weekly cleanings. Its been fun watching our salmon grow and development. Our anticipated release date is May 31st. As the days go by I see more and more students getting involved with this Salmon in the Classroom project. The food size has increased to 1.5 mm fish pellets. The fish are fed over three times a day now and the fish are roughly 3.0 inches in length. The fish pellets smell like fish and steamed greens.
