ACE PD - Virtual Field Trip

  1. 1. By Joan Davis
  2. 2. We learned their process to collect fish eggs through the bottom of the tanks.
  3. 3. We saw 2-year old fish kept in large vats. These are Atlantic Sturgeon.
  4. 4. These fish are pretty big !
  5. 5. The mouth of the Atlantic Sturgeon is on the bottom of its body.
  6. 6. 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.”
  7. 7. 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?
  8. 8. What kind of fish performs brain operations? A neuro–sturgeon !!
