Students are fascinated by fish, especially sharks. This fascination offers an opportunity to engage students in many topics, including structure and processes, diversity, adaptations, population dynamics, human impacts, and sustainability. Join us for this multi-day workshop to learn more about the biology of fish, our Gulf fish species, how scientists study fish, fisheries management, aquaculture, and seafood sustainability. We’ll explore a variety of fish collection techniques aboard DISL’s research vessels, we’ll visit local aquaculture facilities and learn about regional aquaculture successes, and we’ll hear about current research from fisheries scientists. We’ll try our hands at being fishery managers and explore additional hands-on activities suitable for the classroom.
