ACE PD - Virtual Field Trip ACE PD - Virtual Field Trip Presentation Transcript

  • St. John's students visit Dept. of Natural Resources Fish Hatchery Cedarville State Forest. By Joan Davis
  • We learned their process to collect fish eggs through the bottom of the tanks.
  • We saw 2-year old fish kept in large vats. These are Atlantic Sturgeon.
  • These fish are pretty big !
  • The mouth of the Atlantic Sturgeon is on the bottom of its body.
  • Atlantic sturgeon were plentiful when the colonists settled this country. Consider these facts from the Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources website:
    • “ Early settlers reported huge schools leaping from the Susquehanna and James River, and referred to sturgeon as navigational hazards.”
    • “ An American officer during the Revolution had his leg broken by a ten foot sturgeon that leaped into his boat as he rowed across the Potomac at Georgetown.”
  • Read the first 2 paragraphs of this article: http:// www.umces.edu/hpl/sturgeon -restoration
    • Find the answers to these 2 questions:
    • How long have sturgeon been on this earth (as far as we can figure)?
    • Why did they almost disappear from this area?
  • What kind of fish performs brain operations?
    • A neuro–sturgeon !!
