École catholique La Renaissance hoping for plenty of big ones

Over the last few years, Ecole catholique La Renaissance in Espanola has taken part in a fish egg planting program, not only to learn the science behind it all, but also to replenish local area waterways.

The students received 5,000 trout eggs this week from Roland Frappier, a local expert.

For some 40 years, Frappier has developed his expertise and shared his experience in community fish farming of walleye and trout, among others, with others in the Greater Sudbury area.

Under the supervision of their teacher, students will now watch the fish eggs hatch and grow into fry, then fingerlings with them being released in late Spring.

The farming and releasing of fish also provide students with the opportunity to contribute to Ontario’s ecosystems while also gaining an understanding of the importance of taking care of the environment.
