KEWAUNEE - The Besadny Fish Facility in Kewaunee is a busy place right now.
Coho and Chinook Salmon are making the annual trip from Lake Michigan to the fishery, where their eggs will be harvested.
The salmon are led by flowing water past two underwater viewing windows in a fish ladder that leads them to six collection ponds.
Fish are then moved from the ponds into the processing building to be spawned and harvested.
The entire process allows for the re-stocking of salmon into the waters of Lake Michigan every year.
You can see the process for yourself during an annual open house event at Besadny on Saturday, October 9. It takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be guided tours at 9:30, 11:00 and 2:00 p.m.
Experts at Besadny do say this year's run appears to be slower than in years past.
"The water levels have been high this year, which would typically mean more salmon would be coming into the fishery sooner," said Katie Boseo, an Assistant Naturalist. "However, that doesn't seem to be the case this year."
FOX 11's Angela Kelly paid a visit to the fishery for Friday's Good Day Wisconsin to learn more.
