SITC End of the Year Salmon Release Reporting and Equipment Clean Up and Storage

The fry can be released into a creek or river any time from March on until the end of the school year.  You are required by WDFW to release your salmon into the body of water listed on your permit.  Remember to record:

1.        your release date

2.        approximate number of fish released

This information will need to be reported to us ASAP after your release (no later than 30 days) so we can report it to WDFW.

Equipment Clean Up and Storage

For inline equipment:

Empty your tank and clean your equipment.  Rinse out the filter canister housing and inserts thoroughly, let them air dry and put them back into the filter. Be sure the gasket O ring in the lid is clean and replace securely.  Disconnect and soak tubing and rinse out.  Clean out the tank and air dry.  If the air stones or tank get hard water deposits built up on them you can soak them in vinegar and then rinse thoroughly.  Drain water out of the chiller. The radiator on the chiller should be gently vacuumed to remove dust & debris.  Then put the equipment in a safe place until the next year; if you don’t plan to raise fish again please notify us ASAP so we can get the equipment transferred to someone who will use it.

For Rod Chillers:

Empty your tank and clean your equipment.  Rinse the filter inserts thoroughly and put them back into the filter.  We are having trouble locating new inserts, so we need to reuse as long as possible.  Vacuum or blow out the radiator of the chiller.  Then put the equipment in a safe place until the next year; if you don’t plan to raise fish again please notify us ASAP so we can get the equipment transferred to someone who will use it.
