How old do fish live to be? Why do fisheries scientists age fish? How do they do it?

With the aid of prepared materials, students will use microscopes to determine the age of a sample of fish, record data and present their findings graphically. Students will also learn how this information assists in the sustainable management of our fisheries.

Cost: $5.00 per student
