This morning's order was for 5625 trout to be delivered to a nearby lake. That number seems weirdly specific, but Paige (the hatchery biologist) says that they are usually asked for some total number of fish to be split into several stockings, so they get odd numbers like this.
The hatchery has a large truck with three insulated tanks, aerators, oxygen bottles, etc. to transport fish from the hatchery to the lake. Joe, the maintenance man here handles the driving chores, as the driver has to have a CDL.
