Well we went the fish hatchery again on thursday. I forgot my camera, but i found these and this about sums it up. I don't know how i was imagining it, but i sure didn't imagine it like this!! They cut the female fish open, scoop out her eggs into this black tub, and then take the male fish and squeeze out their sperm and throw them in a bucket....it was pretty gross, but i guess they were doing it to "save" the fish.... i just was a little upset. i wasn't NOT expecting this!! It was fun to see it all happening though. We can't go to the Salmon Festival this year, but for sure next year!
