Module 15: Ocean Resources

As our textbook asks, “What is the most popular food resource from the sea?”, we would most likely answer, “Fish.”  Although, correct we discovered that this answer can be further explained by delineating between finfish and shellfish, and not to be excluded are the seaweeds.

In Experiment 15.1, Mapping Ocean Resources.  Resources from the ocean are found throughout the world.  Most of the world’s major fisheries are located near the coasts, collecting both pelagic and demersal organisms.  Most of these sites are concentrated  where upwelling enhances primary production and where the wide continental shelf areas are around the world. Finish this lab and have it ready for class on Thursday.

We further explored commercial fishing boats and the methods of captured used by fisheries.  We observed first hand Mr. Kevin Wilson as they fished for Tuna off the New England coast.    We also discussed the types of fish being caught, Clupeoid, Gadoid and Open Ocean.
