Volunteers needed for salmon duty

by | Jan 31, 2012

Volunteer fish feeders are needed for the 2012 salmon supplementation project in Carkeek Park. From February through May, 50,000 Chum Salmon fry will need to be fed three times a day by volunteers. Salmon from the Suquamish Tribal fish hatchery are raised in a small pond at Carkeek Park where they learn the taste and smell of the creek water.

“Salmon duty” takes just 30 minutes at least once a week. Schedules are flexible and fish feeders attend a one hour training. The training for spring fish feeders will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, February 11.

This is a joint project between Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Carkeek Watershed Community Action Project. Interested fish feeders should contact Nancy Malmgren at 206-363-4116.
