Trout in the Classroom

 In Ocean Academy

By: Kathleen Caffee,  Science Teacher

Tout are extremely sensitive organisms, that rely on high standards of water quality.  Unfortunately, like many schools raising Trout in New Jersey this year, our population did not survive past fingerling stage.  Thanks to volunteers and the Pequest Fish Hatchery, we have received a new batch of trout in the fingerling stage.  We are looking forward to releasing the trout this spring at the Riverwood Park, in our own “backyard”!

    The trout are so adorable and the fact that I like fish makes them even more adorable.

    I am glad we are releasing the trout. I hope the trout will be free in the forest waters. It will be the right thing to do. I hope we have fun doing it again like we do it last year.

    I am happy about getting new fishes for the tank! Its good to see them swim with a bigger family member. Just keep swimming little ones!

    We got some new fish, they are so cute! I can’t wait to see them grow and I can’t wait to release them into the wild like we do every year.

    I enjoy looking at the trout, and I can’t wait for us to release them in the spring. Hopefully a good portion of them will survive to be released. I know Mrs. Caffee and her students have been working hard to keep them alive.
