Trout in the Classroom

This is a look at rearing trout in a classroom environment from beginning with eggs right through the growing stages to the point where the mature fish can be released into an outdoor pond where they'll live and continue to grow.

This is the pond at the center where the trout will be released.City School Aquiculture Component has been hard at work to design and putting together a biological filter for a 600 gallon glass tank. The goal of this project is to raise rainbow trout fry from Wikiki Fish Hatchery until they are large enough to be released into the Outdoor Learning Center ponds. Once the fish are large enough they will one day recaptured and released into local rivers and lakes.
