Study Notes for Module 15:  MODULE 15 CLASS STUDY NOTES MARCH 22

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.
