STUDENTS RECOMMEND POLLOCK QUOTAS TO PROFESSIONALS
As a result of the connections made through SouthEast Exchange, Elizabeth Siddon and Jess Cobley created an ecosystems unit to teach children about Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management. In Spring 2018, 105 7th grade students at Floyd Dryden Middle School learned about and researched the Bering Sea ecosystem. The unit culminated in a mock fisheries management process where students presented quota recommendations for 2019 eastern Bering Sea pollock to a panel of experts including Plan Team, SSC, and Council members.

CONNECTIONS BEING MADE!
Kristen Wells, Biology Teacher at Thunder Mountain High School, invited NOAA Scientist, Kim Raum-Suryan, into her classroom.
Kim presented on Steller sea lion entanglement and their disentanglement efforts to over 60 kids! The students really enjoyed hearing her speak and learning real life applications of marine biology.
