Sport Fish Restoration


Campers learn the characteristics of Alabama's freshhwater fish with the help of a fish display. 

Knowing how to identify your catch is an important part of fishing

Mrs. Morrison shows students specimen jars filled with fish collected mostly from Tannehill.
 

Mr. Moss helps identify some of the more difficult fish.


Mussels were also part of the display.

Biologist Jerry Moss told us about the apple snail which is one of many exotics that has been introduced to Alabama.

The EnviroScape model is used to simulate pollution in our watershed.

Because Alabama is home to so many types of fish future anglers have a lot to remember.

Seeing fish and mussels firsthand is a great way to learn more about them.

Intern Jace Barnett demonstrates how to use the EnviroScape model.

Campers enjoy volunteering their skills to name the fish Mr. Moss is describing.

We had a great time learning about Alabama's aquatic environment!

Thanks for the fun!
