Hatching Walleye Eggs

Posted: Updated:
The S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie will be busy over the next several weeks watching over more than 1.3 million walleye eggs. The eggs arrived today from the Linesville Hatchery.
 Volunteers from the fishing group and Gannon University students then put them into tanks where they will grow at the Chestnut Street Hatchery. If all goes well, the tiny walleye will be put into Presque Isle Bay next month. But only a small percentage will live to be adults.
 Bob Zawadski of the S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie said, "Anywhere from 1-5%. The fact we hatch them in a captive environment increases that a little bit. Nature will do 1-3% is what we have been told by people who have studied this more than I do."
The  S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie have operated the bayfront facility for more than 30 years.
