- Connect students to their local environment
- Teach about water quality and watershed health
- Introduce conservation
Teachers will have to buy, or borrow, an aquarium set up. This costs roughly $1,300. Once a system is bought, maintaining it costs very little. If you are interested in Teaching with Trout, but the cost is prohibitive, please contact us. An aquarium system includes:
- 55-gallon tank
- Water chiller
- Water filter
- Water pump
- Air pump
- Water chemistry test kits
MassWildlife staff are available to help with aquarium questions and troubleshooting. Hatchery field trips may also be arranged.
