Welcome to the Salmon in the Classroom Project!

The Seaport is working with Tacoma Public Schools & Pierce Conservation District to bring salmon tanks into elementary schools across Tacoma. Starting in 2021 we will be raising Coho salmon in 12 schools. Students will be assisting in raising these salmon from eggs to fry before determining where they will be released next Spring. Stay tuned for more updates by following our Education blog: https://fosswaterwayseaport.org/category/education-blog/
