This week, to celebrate our Fish Fanatics theme, we learned about fishing practices in order to highlight the importance that fish and fishing plays in the Boston Harbor ecosystem and local economy. I altered an activity about declining shark populations to teach about how the fishing practices of hook and line, gillnets, long lines, and trawls.
The lesson above demonstrates, in an active and fun way, how four of the most common fishing practices work. Click here to learn more about fishing practices and about the fish on your plate.
