For the third year running, the Sanday school have put their shed to good use and it is again the home for a batch of Harray Loch brown trout ova. As in the past, pupils and teachers have embraced the project with a lot of enthusiasm, care and a desire to get everything right!
There were concerns raised earlier on, when, for up to a week following the transfer in their tank, the odd ovum would die, which the school isn’t used to, with a near-perfect track record! Everybody is relieved now that things have settled and no more dead ova have had to be removed for the last ten days. We can now distinctly notice the eyes beginning to appear inside the egg (see photo below).
