    Hooked ON Hatcheries - Episode 1 - Lake Trout Egg Collection

    The Community Hatchery Program (CHP) is proud to present episode 1 of the Hooked ON Hatcheries video series. In this episode we visit hatchery volunteers from the Haliburton Highlands Outdoors Association (HHOA) as they collect wild Haliburton Gold Lake Trout eggs to raise in their community hatchery. Fish are raised by volunteers for up to 1.5 years and released into local lakes.

    We plan on creating as many episodes as possible that cover a variety of community hatchery topics and focus on community hatchery techniques that would be best shown in video format. These educational/technical resources will be important for you to share with the public and your membership because they are a great products to showcase all the great work your volunteers do. YouTube videos and social media (Facebook and Twitter) posts are the best ways to get young people excited and hooked on hatcheries. These high quality videos are filmed and produced in full 1080p HD – this is high enough quality to be presented on TV or blown up onto an amphitheatre size screen. Hopefully this will catch the eye of new long-term volunteers.

    I look forward to meeting with all hatcheries at some point over the next two years that we have left in our current MNRF-CHP agreement to film episodes for this series. Remember that visibility across all forms of media is the best tool we have to ensure that the great work hatcheries are doing for Ontario’s fisheries is being seen. This will help to illustrate the importance and benefits of a dedicated government program to assist community hatcheries.
