Norwalk Students Release Trout into River

This semester, the sophomores in John Foldeak’s marine biology class took a shot at raising 200 fertilized brown trout eggs. They prepared a 55-gallon trout tank—checking water temperature, oxygen and pH levels and more to ensure it was ready—and then watched the young smolts grow.

On Wednesday [April 11], some of Foldeak’s students joined him behind Silvermine Elementary School to release 115 young trout into the Silvermine River. Members of the Mianus Chapter of Trout Unlimited also attended to provide the eggs as part of its Trout in the Classroom program.

That is a great program!

Similar to the "Salmon in Schools" which handles Atlantic salmon in 100 or more schools operated by The Connecticut River Salmon Association.

Education is the name of the game when it comes to conservation.
