The first part of the report describes what happened at the sessions; the second part contains the appendices. Various countries--Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, and the United States--reported on their recent activities. Papers discussing curriculum projects were presented. Discussed were the Antarctica and Southern Ocean Project, which developed K-12 classroom materials, a film on salmon developed by a group in Alaska, a unit of study developed on the "New Zealand Fisheries," and student activities for a "Bays and Harbours Unit--Honolulu."
