From Ocean to Table

Students have the opportunity to get an "insider's" view of the complex factors that determine the viability of a commercial fishery (Social Studies / Economics).

Other Opportunities for Teachers

Fisherman in the Classroom

The program provides students a hands-on learning experience of "a day in the life" of a modern-day commercial fisherman. The program is usually a classroom visit, but if schools have funds for field trips we also welcome scheduling harbor/vessel tours.
