Hatching started at North Walls

Newly hatched brown trout alevin

I’ve just received a message from Mr Stout this morning saying that some ova have started hatching over the week-end! The Hoy team are still doing a great job and have kept mortality levels extremely low with only one more dead ovum.

Now that alevins are out and about, extra care will need to be taken: all pumps need to be fitted with a filter of some sort: a small bottle with pin holes no bigger than Ø 3mm or even a piece of nylon tights for  pumps where a bottle cannot be fitted.

Looking forward to hearing more news about the Hoy alevins!
