Fin Clipping - July 10th, 2014

For the second year in a row, we are clipping adipose fins on our young hatchery Coho salmon for the DFO to get an idea of how many of our hatchery fish are returning.  This year we are clipping 6,000 fins before putting the fish in our pond until next May when we will be releasing them.
Scott shows volunteers how to clip the fins.

 Time for a light meal before carrying on with the task.

FIN - ished!
Our little salmon will be heading outside to the pond soon.
