DARIEN, Conn. Darien students raised trout and released them into the Silvermine River in Norwalk as part of Middlesex Middle Schools Trout in the Classroom Club.
The students worked with Middlesex teacher Will Heher and Dick ONeil of the Mianus Chapter of Trout Unlimiteds Trout in the Classroom program. They received 200 brown trout eggs last November, of which a total of 130 of the 3-inch fish survived.
The fish were raised in a 50-gallon container in Hehers classroom. Kids were responsible for coming in early and feeding the fish, cleaning the water and taking measurements of the growth of the fish.
