VIDEO – Stocking brook trout eyed eggs at Norton’s Creek

Bob Florean of the Manitoulin Area Stewardship Council (MASC) explains to the students of Lakeview School and Assiginack Public School the lifecycle of a brook trout eyed egg, which were delicately placed by the students in ‘Scotty boxes’ only a short time earlier. The boxes, each containing 1,000 eggs, were placed in Norton’s Creek, a tributary of Lake Manitou, where they will eventually hatch, repopulating the stream and lake with brook trout. The annual event is an initiative of Manitoulin Streams.
