Raising Salmon at the Office: Round Two

Posted on January 9, 2023 at 2:34 PM by Camila Matamala-Ost

We received 200 coho salmon eggs for our tank

We had such a fun time raising salmon in a tank at our office last year, we thought we’d do it again!

We are back for another year of partnership with Tacoma elementary schools who will also raise salmon in their classrooms. Along with Foss Waterway Seaport, we will support 19 schools as they learn about the salmon life cycle, observe their growth, and eventually release them into the wild.

To follow along, check out our Instagram as we share updates, fun videos, and show how kids are interacting with the salmon.

Check out the first video we made about the process!
