The Weekly Photo Challenge: New

With Michelle’s Challenge this week of new, I present some real cute newborns: salmon from a hatchery.  These are new salmon eggs just in the process of hatching into Alevins or fry. Some day these might become tasty morsels on someone’s barbecue grill.

      Thanks Jane,
      These are Chinook salmon that will be released into the Nooksack River and some into Whatcom Creek where the hatchery is, in Downtown Bellingham.

    Hi Jane,
    The Nooksack river is great. It comes right out of the glaciers (as long as they last), and runs to Bellingham Bay. Great salmon river but polluted by all the dairy farms along the way.
