Salmon in the Classroom
Salmon Incubation Forms

A fish incubation permit is a type of fish resource permit. An incubation permit is required for classroom teachers who wish to take, transport, possess, and hold live fish and their eggs (typically salmon; excludes goldfish and ornamental fish) for a classroom or school incubation project. A classroom project usually requires a recirculating aquarium for up to 500 eggs. A vocational project usually requires a separate incubation facility for up to 50,000 eggs. The review takes approximately 30 days.
