Annual Brook Trout Release

CHMS 7th grade students from the Sequoia and Summit teams released young brook trout into the Huntington River and into Sherman Hollow Brook on Wednesday, June 13th. 

The release was a part of the annual Trout in The Classroom project sponsored and supported by Trout Unlimited. Students received 100 eggs through Trout in the Classroom in early January.  Students observed as the eggs developed yolk sacs and grew into alevin, developed into fry, and most recently reached the fingerling stage. Students also engaged in stream monitoring with the UVM Watershed Alliance to understand the chemistry and the biology and the physical characteristics of  the watercourse where the Brook Trout would eventually be released. While caring for the fish, students monitored the chemistry of the water quality in the tank and followed strict protocols for feeding and care.
