    School of fish – students head to hatchery to learn about the life cycles of salmon

    Frost fish hatchery visit

    Fourth grade students at Robert Frost Elementary School are learning about the life cycles of salmon. The students saw Coho and Chinook salmon up close during a visit to the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery on November 8. During a tour, they learned about salmon habitat and how the hatchery operates. They also learned how to tell the difference between Coho and Chinook, and whether a fish was male or female. The salmon complete their grueling journey from the sea to spawn in Issaquah Creek in the fall. Teachers at Frost hope to use this experience to talk about the impact of the salmon on the state economy as well as Native American culture.
