Is Our Food Future in the Sea? A Marine Education Infusion Unit on Aquaculture and Sea Farming. Revised Edition.
Butzow, John W.; And Others
Designed to introduce middle and junior high school teachers and students to aquaculture and sea farming, the information and lessons in this unit focus on the biology, economics, and gastronomics of these fresh and salt water activities. An extensive section containing teacher background information describes how to farm shellfish and finfish, summarizes major developments in aquaculture in the northern New England area, and discusses specific shellfish and other species. Five multidisciplinary activities focus on mussels, crayfish, and aquaculture equipment. The unit concludes with a simulation game about the oyster culture industry. Lists of organizational and commercial resources are provided as well as bibliographies of technical materials, general books, and cook books. Illustrations and student worksheets are included. (DC)
