My the summer has flown by. I hope you all had a wonderful summer! As we begin a new school year and season for Fish in the Classroom. Chelsea and I wanted to briefly introduce ourselves and let you know who we are and what we do to facilitate CAEP (or Fish in the Classroom). Put a face to the email address, you know. I hope you enjoy!

New teacher workshops begin next month. Register here! Registration is low in San Joaquin county. So low it may be canceled. If you know anyone that may be interested please share this with them. We have scheduled a last minute workshop in Plumas County on Tuesday, August 13. If you are in that area and want to attend contact us.

Application for Salmon Eggs

Feather/Sacramento River Salmon egg applications will be accepted from September 1, 2019 through October 31, 2019. Applications must be emailed to r2caep@wildlife.ca.gov. Applications that are not emailed will not be accepted. Applications that come before September 1 or after October 31 will be returned.

Lastly, I rang the fishing helpline today and said, "I'm rubbish at fishing, can you help me?" The guy said, "Can you hold the line?" I said, "No." 😊

Enjoy the last days of summer!

Gyotaku video. Link opens in new window.

Hello! Summer is is full swing! The weather is warm (or hot perhaps). Here is a fun and simple activity for your consideration next year. Any suggestions or things you would like to share please let us know.

Gyotaku, or ‘fish – stone impression’ is a traditional Japanese art of printing fish. It was used in the mid 1800’s for fishermen to record their catches. This is a fun activity to get your students excited about raising fish in their classroom. You can use your own store bought fish or find rubber stamps online like the ones we use.

Workshops are scheduled, click to sign up!

SPONSORS: Check out the workshop dates and let us know what dates you would like to help out.

Cuidate!

p.s. At the end of each post we will include a table with a brief glance of where each run/fish are at on their annual timeline.

Hello teachers and ‘spawnsors’! We are kicking off our monthly (mostly and hopefully wink) newsletters to keep you updated and in the loop with all things steelhead eggs in foam cuphappening in our program. We want to better equip you all with useful knowledge, resources, ideas and information to enhance, enrich and engage your students with the fish in your classroom.

Just as the eggs hatching in your classroom are the start of something new...this blog is the start of something new as well. CAEP staff will do our best to make sure "conditions are right" for this newly hatched effort to survive and thrive. Similar to your classrooms the excitement, participation, and contribution of all increase the chances of success. Now that I think about this analogy. I probably should've picked something different considering the low survival rate of the anadromous fish we raise. frownOh well...we'll be the one, right!

We will post important dates, application/permit reminders, featured videos, interesting articles, and relevant lessons. If you have any awesome resources to share, please email us at r2caep@wildlife.ca.gov. Thanks!

More to come soon...-RM
