Release of Chum Salmon

AJ Elliott School released 99 chum fry into our Rough Bay Creek Thursday, April 17th. The chum were so healthy some of them tried to “chump” out of the cups when they were being released. The Salmon Dream Team did a wonderful job keeping them alive despite the small hiccup of the filter breaking and some controversy (for more on that go see Freyja’s blog regarding her opinion piece on the viability of the stream). Our school has been releasing fry into the stream for many years. This is an educational endeavour which helps to educate students of our ecosystems and the cycle of life for our precious salmon.
