Eggs To Fry

Steelheaders Supports our Schools

Steelheaders are committed to expanding ODFW’s Fish Eggs to Fry program to connects kids at early age with salmonids by allowing students to raise salmon or trout in a classroom aquarium. We own more than 100 of these aquariums and chillers in local schools and provide volunteers to deliver eggs to the classroom and to help with releasing fry. Steelheaders recently completed a project in cooperation with ODFW Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program to provide more support for Eggs to Fry by making it easier for volunteers to be involved in the program. The project created interactive materials and videos to help volunteers familiarize themselves with the  program and to interact meaningfully with classroom students as they learn  about the importance of salmonids to the ecosystem and economy.
