salmon eggs
In the wild, fertilized eggs would lay in rocky streambeds until they hatched. At the hatchery, eggs and milt are collected from returning adult salmonids and the fertilized eggs are placed in incubation trays and kept in water from the Dworshak reservoir. The hatchery regulates the temperature and flow of water in the trays to keep the eggs healthy and growing at an appropriate rate.
