Loomster is in Orca pool where is he gaining weight and getting ready for release.

Loomster may have been slow to learn in fish school, but is now a great competitor in his pre release pool.

Loomster has made great process and is almost eating fish on his own! Well done, Loomster!

Loomster is doing really well! He's grown & gained quite a bit weight. He's left quarantine and is progressing well.

Loomster is receiving supportive fluid but otherwise seems to be doing okay. He was alert and responsive this evening, a good sign!
