This weekend was an open house for the S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie fish hatchery.
They've been fostering 1.5 million Walleye eggs.
This is just one hatching project for the group this year, they also usually hatch Steelhead and Perch for the local waterways.
Thanks to the warm temperatures, about 80% hatched, and they were even ahead of schedule.
That means about a million of the tiny little fish, smaller than the diameter of a penny, are ready to be released into Lake Erie.
About one third of them will survive.
"We have a batter hatch rate then they might out in the wild," said S.O.N.S. member Bob Zawadzki, "then it's up to nature to survive on their own."
This years batch of Walleye will be released into the lake on Monday.
