The new, 175-gallon aquarium to greet visitors at the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery was installed Sept. 5 inside the main double doors of the facility on West Sunset Way. The 10-foot by 15-by-12-inch aquarium, combined with a new mural backdrop by former Issaquah artist Larry Kangas, was conceived and funded by Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery. Coho fingerlings have been added to the tank, and it will later also hold fertilized salmon eggs which visitors will be able to watch hatch and grow among the driftwood, nesting gravel and creek rocks of the aquarium.
