The Classroom Aquarium Education Program (CAEP) was selected as an “Outstanding Aquatic Education Program” by the Aquatic Resources Education Association.

California has the largest program enabling students to hatch fish in their classroom in the nation. This award is a direct result of the participation of partners and classroom teachers who bring this experience to well over 30,000 students each year.

Thanks to all the teachers, sponsors, and coaches who make this possible each year.
