Through a classroom experience of hatching fish eggs and coordinated activities, students experience firsthand the value of aquatic environments, the balance that must be met to maintain and preserve California’s fisheries and aquatic habitats, and how their personal actions affect these valuable resources.
Successful completion of this training class qualifies teachers to apply for a permit to hatch fish,
receive eggs and to receive classroom support and equipment to enable you to hatch fish in the classroom.
Teachers must be present for the entire workshop to be certified to receive fish eggs.
