Wildlife Watch: Spawning fish

Posted: Updated:
GRAND ISLE, Vt. -

The salmon, walleye and trout you may catch in Lake Champlain don't all just arrive there naturally. Some are created through a process fish culture experts have down to a science. Our Eva McKend took a trip to Grand Isle to learn more about how it's done from Kevin Kelsey, the manager at the Ed Weed hatchery. Watch the video to see.

Some other fun facts: landlocked Atlantic salmon are a native species to Lake Champlain and the Ed Weed Fish Culture Station produces about 150,000 Atlantic salmon, also known as smolts, every year.
