Welcome to the world!  Here's one of our very own brook trout from our aquatic nursery.  We looked at this specimen under the Ken-A-Vision microscope today.  This trout is in the alevin stage.  An alevin carries around a sac full of nutrients.  When all of the nutrients are absorbed, the trout will "swim up."  Swimming up is when the trout are looking for REAL food!
