December 5, 2019       Hatchery news

  1.  John Blunt has assured me that we will have wild Atlantic eggs so that we can continue the Fish Friends Program.    

  2. We will be checking the broodstock in the hatchery to see if they are “ripe” on Monday December 9th.

  3. We purchased a used chiller from the UNE Marine Science Department and will be picking it up on December 6th and plan to move it into the basement of the hatchery on December 9th.  Assuming we will have enough volunteers to accomplish this task.   Since we will be checking the broodstock the same day, this may be possible.   John Blunt says he as a plan for moving it to the basement and Ray Gosselin has experience moving heavy equipment.

  4. Our next Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Monday evening December 9th from 7 – 9 PM in the hatchery conference room.


Our expenses are currently higher than normal.  Early membership renewals and donations will be sincerely appreciated.


Thank you!
