Other Adopt-A-Trout Programs

  • Montana Adopt-A-Trout Program. Started in 2001, I think this was the first program. Lots of information on trout biology and radiotelemetry at the website. You can also download their curriculum (and teacher’s guide) designed for elementary to middle school students.
  • Wyoming Adopt-A-Trout Program. Their program started in 2007. The link is to the Winter 2013 Wyoming TU newsletter with a big article on the success of their program. Here is a video of the program in action:


Here is their curriculum guide posted at the TU’s troutintheclassroom website: WYAdoptATrout Curriculum Guide. This is a good resource for teachers wishing to address a somewhat younger audience then our curriculum.

Sea Run Brook Trout

  • Sea Run Brook Trout Coalition. Good place to learn about sea run brook trout biology conservation efforts. Here is a video about a pit-tag and acoustic tag study being done in Massaschusetts sponsored in part by SRBTC:
  • Listen to this Trout Unlimited podcast with one of the volunteers on the Red Brook Sea Run Brook Trout Project.

Telemetry Sites

  • PIT Tag Information System (PTAGIS): The source for information about PIT-tagged fish in the Columbia River Basin. Beautiful and comprehensive website on PIT-tagging and the salmon tagging program in the Northwest. The Interpretative Center is an excellent interactive source for how this huge program works. The Information System provides downloadable data for identifications at each of the thousands of antennae.
  • Seaturtle.org maintains a site in which the movements of tagged animals (sea turtles, hawks and eagles and many other birds, sharks, whales and dolphins and other sea mammals) are tracked by satellite using data submitted by researchers from all over the world. The site also has lots of teacher resources.
