    Trout in the Classroom (TIC) is a conservation-oriented environmental education program. Through the school year, students raise trout from eggs to fry and then release them into approved cold water streams and lakes. This act of raising, monitoring, and caring for young trout fosters a conservation ethic within participating students and promotes an understanding of their shared water resources.

    Newly hatched trout, called sac fry or alevins, are still attached to their yolk sac, which they use as a food source. After the yolk sac is absorbed, trout begin to swim up in search of food. When the eggs hatch, the alevins stay nestled at the bottom of the breeding net. They will remain there until they fully consume their yolk sacs. At this point they begin to swim up to the surface in search of food. After they begin to swim up, we will lower the breeding net and let those that are ready swim out of the net and into the aquarium. This is the stage at which we begin to feed the trout.
