Spawning McKenzie River Chinook Salmon, Oregon, Erik The Fish Nerd

Broodstock Chinook salmon were released back into the McKenzie River during the Holiday Farm Fire. Shortly after we were allowed back into the facility, one of our top priorities was to re-collect enough broodstock to hit egg take goals. We made it! Watch us spawn Chinook by removing eggs from the females and fertilizing with the males. We even have a Fish Health Specialist on hand to check the fish for disease issues.
