(7/7) At this point in the process, we’re trying something that is totally new — raising wipers entirely indoors. If we are successful, we will be the first state in the U.S. to do this. #HatcheryHighlight
(6/7) The eggs developed and hatched very quickly. Within only two hours, cell division began occurring and within two days, the eggs were fully hatched! Now, we have 280,000 newly-hatched wiper fry just starting to feed.
(5/7) We take the eggs we collect from the striped bass and fertilize them with milt from male white bass to create a hybrid species — the wiper. This is a relatively new program we’re testing, and this year was our most successful experience so far!
(2/7) We start by collecting eggs from our female striped bass. This occurs very differently for striped bass than it does for any other fish in our hatcheries.
(4/7) The entire operation occurs in almost complete darkness, and our hatchery crews work by flashlight. 🔦
(3/7) For example, we have less than an hour-long window to extract the eggs from the striped bass. (In contrast, we can get eggs from trout for several days.) This means we have to be really careful and quick, while also trying to minimize stress on the striped bass.
(🧵1/7) 🐟 Check out the interesting process of creating hybrid striped bass — also called wipers — at our Springville Hatchery! 🐟
