Fisheries Management is an aquatic ecology class. After investigating the habitat needs of stream fish, students visit the Sawmill Creek field stations where they will make a working stream model, identify aquatic invertebrates and fish for a variety of species along with the native brown trout.
Upon completion of the Fisheries Management class, students will be able to:
- Evaluate a population graph for carrying capacity, predator/prey relationships and habitat health.
- Compare and contrast stream and lake environments as they relate to habitat for aquatic life.
- Identify at least two aquatic invertebrates and describe their roles in the food chain.
- Bait hooks and angle for fish using catch and release techniques.
- Identify at least two different species of fish.
