Salmon-in-Schools is an educational program for students to learn about the history, geography and science of wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in the Connecticut River basin.
Atlantic salmon eggs, taken from returning adult salmon or their offspring, are reared for the salmon Legacy Project in school classrooms. When the eggs hatch, the young fish, called alevin, quickly develop into fry. At this stage, they are collected and stocked at selected locations in the Connecticut River watershed as part of the overall Legacy program. Students from kindergarten through college level participate actively in all phases of the program, which runs from December until May.
