Definition of fry

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Term to describe newly-hatched fish. Pond gardeners with fish will have to deal with new babies appearing each spring. Many of them will die or be eaten, which will help maintain the number of fish in the pond.

While it's tempting to try to save all the fry, having too many fish will eventually cause other problems with the pond's ecosystem.

Definition as written by Greenwood:

To cook over direct heat in hot oil or fat.

Definition as written by Wingnut:

What your seedlings will do if you put them out in full sun before hardening them off.
