A Cape Elizabeth High School AP biology class visited a Maine Inland Fisheries & Wildlife fish hatchery in Casco to learn about learn about the breeding and stocking processes, hatchery operation, some of Maine's fish species, careers related to fisheries, and to pick up brook trout eggs for their classroom and three classroom tanks at Cape Elizabeth Middle school. The biology students then taught all 6th graders about their experience at the hatchery and delivered their eggs! Students will raise the brook trout in their classrooms through the spring, where they will learn about topics related to water quality, genetics, biology, pollution, local resources, and stewardship. The trout will be released into a local water body in May. This Pathways effort connects students to local resources and relevant, hands-on learning experiences.
