This program year we are excited to have 9 fish tanks up and running in Asotin County schools! Each tank will receive 200 rainbow trout eggs. Through this program, students can hatch salmon eggs at school, learn about salmon lifecycle, habitat and learn how to test water quality. The hands-on experience of raising fish helps students realize that salmon are one of the many benefits of our Eastern Washington rivers. Classroom lessons on salmon anatomy and lifecycle compliment science and math, while historic and cultural lessons about salmon relate to Washington state history, social studies and geography. Once the trout reach parr stage in June, they are released into the local watershed.
