Salmon Release ・ サケ放流

2010.03.19 (Fri)

March 16 was the official release date of the salmon we have been raising at the Yurihama town office. In just three months, the salmon hatched from their eggs and grew to be over 5 cm long. With the help of the students from Hawai Elementary School, and despite some interference by nearby swans, we successfully released over 200 salmon into Lake Togo. The salmon will now make their way out to sea and begin their life in the wild. Good luck!

3月16日に町役場で育てたサケを放流しました。最初は小さな卵だったけど、たった3ヶ月で体長が5センチほどになりました。白鳥の邪魔にもかかわらず、羽合小学校の児童とともに、約200匹のサケを東郷池に放流しました。これからサケは海に向かって、大自然での生活を始めます。頑張って!

  1. How many salmon did the swans eat. They must have had a heydey, swimming around so happily, eating and eating.


    • I think they only ate about two. The salmon swam away pretty quickly.


  2. is this the salmon blog? I am wondering about when the baby salmon come back to spawn, are you guys going to come in to work one morning and all the salmon are going to be on the floor fighting to get back into that little fish tank?
