Smolt grading at the hatchery

The final grade has taken place at the hatchery – this is where fish are passed through a grid to sort out smaller fish that will not smolt this year from larger fish that will be stocked out as smolts. As a result, we now have the final amount of smolts this year. 45,000 fin clipped smolts will be stocked over the coming month into beats 1 to 4 of the River Lochy.
