When SCWA collects eggs during the Brood Capture, the eggs go into Health Trays.

The trays are remotely monitored for temperature.  These are where the eggs stay through the “eyeing process”         


Then the eggs then hatch and turn into “Alvin”…this is a time when the fish have egg sacs and rely on the sacs for food. 

Once the sacs have been used up, the fish then go into “ponding” as fry.  They are now free to swim about and start to learn to feed.
