Releasing Salmon & Reporting

You can release your salmon just before Spring Break if you aren’t going to be able to care for the fish during that time.  Release into the body of water listed on your WDFW Permit.  When you have finished, email YBEEP with the date of your release, the approximate number of fish, and the release site so we can report this information for you to the state.  Clean your equipment ASAP after releasing & store it all together in a safe place for next year.  All salmon need to be released & reporting done before leaving for summer vacation at the end of this school year.

Here is a life cycle video to share with your students:
