Fish Presentation: Inland Fisheries and Wildlife / State of Maine

On Wednesday 03/21/15 the children enjoyed an interactive presentation featuring live brook trout and brown trout, along with some rainbow trout eggs/sac fry (juvenile fish that have just hatched), which were displayed in the school hallway in several tanks. The fish were brought in by Greg Bell (parent of Jeffrey in preschool) who is a fish culture supervisor at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Students learned all about fish anatomy and their life cycle and were even able to handle the fish. 
The students loved this activity. Merci, Greg !
