CAEP New Teacher Training

The Classroom Aquarium Education Program (CAEP) is a community-based program which allows students to experience first-hand the delicate balance needed for animals to survive in aquatic ecosystems. Using eggs provided by a hatchery, classes set-up and maintain an aquarium for the purpose of observing the development of fish from the eyed-egg stage until they become fry. Students engage in course of study which supports the learning experience across curriculum areas.


This program is run cooperatively by Humboldt County Office of Education, the California Department of Fish & Wildlife, and the Mad River Hatchery.

Grant funding to support the HCOE CAEP is provided by the Humboldt County Fish & Game Advisory Commission and a generous donation from the Humboldt Area Saltwater Anglers.



CAEP provides:

  • A positive learning program for classrooms on the value of aquatic ecosystems through the hatching and release of salmonids 
  • Help students learn about their local watershed and how human activities affect the quality of water in local streams, lakes and bays.
