Fish Friends during 2020-21

Given continued COVID-19 realities, Fish Friends will look a little different this year. We can still provide eggs for schools to raise but our in-person support will be limited. We are currently exploring a virtual alternative for those unable to raise fish in-person, so stay tuned about that. If you are interested in some form of Fish Friends during the 2020-21 school year, please fill out this brief survey to indicate your interest. If you are fairly sure that you want to raise salmon eggs this year, please sign up for a permit by 11/15/20 here.

Have further questions or missed that deadline? Reach out to the Fish Friends Coordinator.

ASF’s “Magic on the Rivers” Guide Now Available!

Hot off the presses: ASF’s “Magic on the Rivers” guide was published in July 2019 and is a great resource for Fish Friends schools and allies!

“The purpose is to assist those teaching young adults the pleasures of salmon and trout angling. It does so in light of the need for these 21st century anglers to practice conservation ethics that match the needs of the rivers and the fish.” 

While the entire 126-page resource is full of educational gems, Fish Friends participants may find Modules 3, 5, and 6 most applicable.

You can download the whole thing by visiting our Participant Resources page. Let us know how you use it!
