Fishing for the Future Extensions


Kate Trimlett shared these extensions of the irecycle@school; Fishing for the Future excercise.

The article, see "Empty Seas" shows the relationship between European consumption and African emigration through the story of fishing off the coast of West Africa.  "Fish Population on the Brink" is a news article discussing worldwide trends in oceanic health. 

After participating in Fishing for the Future, reading the articles, and conducting other research, Kate and her students reviewed the menus of Berkeley restaurants using the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Guide and wrote letters to restaurants praising efforts to offer sustainable food choices or letters to encourage better stewardship or resources through menu changes. 

Included below is a reading tool called S3-WOW that Kate used to help her students identify key information.
