Not today! We are raising coho salmon for the third year and our eggs arrived this afternoon, all wrapped in wet burlap. You can see some of my eighth graders and a bevy of the younger students who came after school to witness the unveiling of our salmon.
My students calculated that if we maintain the water temperature at a chilly 2 degrees C, then our eggs should hatch around January 8th, just after we return from the holidays.
If you look closely, you can see little black eyes peering through the translucent shells. No, little ones, we will not serve you on unsalted crackers; you are destined to serve the higher cause of scientific inquiry!
