Okay, so about the FISHIES! Thought I forgot, huh. BOL
So, I have mentioned before that my Mom works for the State of Pennsylvania. Yes, she does. Well, she heard that the PA Fish Commission was having an open house near my territory, so she and Dad went to check out the action. OMD it was a blast!
They do a project at this lake to increase the walleye population. That's a fish! So, they net up a ginormous number of the adults, then they milk them. THEY REALLY DO! SEE:
They take the fish and press on their bellies so the eggs all get collected in these pans.
First the females, then the males. Once the eggs and sperm are together, then the pour them into these buckets:
After the eggs hatch, the fry are kept safe until they are big enough to be released into the lake.
There was more to see that day, and if you come back tomorrow, I'll show you what else my peeps saw there!
Grr and a Fishie Woof,
Sarge, Nature Lover
