Training is mandatory for new teachers, optional for second year and beyond. Apply for the program initially for tank set-up and training, then apply each year for rainbow trout eggs. NDOW will provide an aquarium-chiller combination, limit 1 per school . After the training, you will help the students set-up and operate the tanks, so they are sure the incubator (aquarium-chiller), is set up and operating properly. This should be done at least two weeks prior to the delivery of eggs. If there are problems which can not be readily solved, contact the regional Angler Education coordinator for help. You may recruit a volunteer who will act as a “tank buddy,” or have one assigned at the training. Training and delivery dates vary for different parts of the state. Southern Nevada teachers receive training in January and by mid-February, eggs arrive from the hatchery. Check with your regional Angler Education coordinator for egg pick-up times and dates in your area. When the eggs arrive, supervised students will put the eggs in the tank. For the next six weeks or so, students will make observations, adjustments and care for the incubator until the eggs hatch and fry are released. Everything teachers need to know about the maintenance of the tank and the fish will be explained in the training. Teachers will be given a TIC binder for future reference .
