Setting up and caring for your aquarium
To insure the success of your classroom aquarium, it is vital to have the right equipment and that it is all properly cleaned before the eggs arrive.
There are many "correct" set-ups and many of them will work. The ones offered here are good, but follow the advice of your sponsoring fishing club.

Permit to Receive Eggs (form 772)
Completion of an approved training program is a prerequisite for applying for a form 772 (Authorization to Transport and Rear Eggs and Fish). Once you have completed the form, please sign it and mail it to the appropriate address listed on page 2 of the form. Please allow 6 weeks to process your application.
It is advisable to work with your sponsoring organization (generally the fly-fishing club you are working with) when you complete the application form.
If approved, your application will be returned to you (or to your sponsoring club) prior to your receiving eggs.
For rainbow trout, please see the list of pre-approved trout release sites below.
Once the fish are released, this form must be completed and returned to your regional coordinator within 10 days of release.
