Today we went to the Linesville, PA Spillway and Hatchery and learned about different fish and how they hatched and preserve each fish. We explored through their building and their outside area. We saw frogs and different fish in tubs ready to be released. They also would carefully package the fertilized fish eggs and trade them to other hatcheries that didn't have the type of fish for the type of fish they don't have.  After we had the tour of the hatchery we continued into the spillway, "where the ducks walk on the fish." We were given a whole loaf of bread to throw into the spillway to the carp who squired and flopped over each other fighting for the bread. If you like chaos you could feed the fish, but if you like a more calm area, there was also ducks walking on top of the fish you could feed. It was a fun experience to go there again to see the fish and ducks for a fun adventure.

This is the first time I have ever heard of ducks walking on top of fish! There must be thousands of fish. It sounds like they all loved the bread!
