Using knowledge of fish behavior and migratory patterns, students created lake hot spot maps showing potential locations for fish species. Students analyzed gill/trap net data and studied fish habitat for each species. Other features include landings, contours, or vegetation.
Students investigate gill net data from various lakes and draw conclusions on size structure, health of a lake, and fish species present to target for angling. Students also learned about survey methods such as gill and trap nets.
Students identified a species of their choice and created a poster on the biology, lures, prey, and seasonal migrations.
