Fish Culture

Fish Culturists Steve Semon and Jeremy Womelsdorff, both Mt Hood Community College Fisheries Program graduates, are responsible for collecting eggs from returning adult salmon, care and inventory of the eggs and the care and feeding of the young fish for one year until release, as well as many facility maintenance projects.  Their years of experience are appreciated in both the daily activities and continuing effort to improve fish care.
