Fisherman in the Classroom pdf icon
    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.

Green Seas / Blue Seas
