Sustaining Our Ocean Resources

This lesson gives students a basic introduction to fisheries, why they are important, and the various methods used to maintain sustainable levels of various marine organisms. Students then have an opportunity to use the capture-recapture model to investigate how scientists monitor the size and number of a marine population and monitor whether fish populations are decreasing.
