Trout in the Classroom Teacher Workshop

Trout in the Classroom (TIC) is a community-based program which allows students to experience first-hand the value of aquatic environments and the balance that must be met to maintain and preserve California's fisheries and aquatic habitats. This is a hands-on, interdisciplinary project for grades K-12 and that is run cooperatively by local schools, fishing clubs and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW).


Using eggs provided by a CDFW hatchery, teachers and their students set up an aquarium in the classroom, receive trout eggs under a special CDFW permit, and observe the life cycle as the fish hatch and develop. The experience may culminate in a field trip a local lake where the trout are released.


Completion of a training workshop is required of all teachers in order to receive eggs. An upcoming workshop will be held at CDFW’s Upper Newport Back Bay Science Center.
