Every year the Almaguin Community Hatchery Program (ACHP) along with students and teachers from the Magnetawan Central School join forces to capture and release walleye fish in a process known as “Fry Planting“.
This year’s event took place on Wednesday May 17, 2017 and saw members of the ACHP along with students working closely together to capture eggs that will be fertilized and monitored over the coming days before being released as fry (baby fish) back into the waters.
The ACHP throughout the years has, under permit of the Ministry of Natural Resources performed this service free of charge to the tax payer which sees fish stocks increase in Ahmic Lake. This volunteer organization made up of retired community members from all walks of life including ex-police officers, teachers and business professionals.
Included below are a few images from ACHP director Jerry Brandt.
