SAA in affiliation with The New Brunswick Salmon Council, delivers the Fish Friends Educational Programs to students in grades 4, 5, and 6 in many schools in Kent county.
Over a four-month period (March through June), students watch egg incubation unit in which live fish hatch and grow right in the classroom. Students learn about the life of salmon and other aquatic creatures in marine and freshwater ecosystems.
Activities teach youngsters important conservation and environmental lessons in a hands-on classroom setting. At the end of the program, students release their fish into designated streams.
