©PROJECT OCEANOGRAPHY FALL 1999 FISH ECOLOGY 74 F ISH E COLOGY Lesson 6. Mystery Fish Revealed!!! After following the show for five episodes, and now the sixth, your Mystery Fish will be given a name! Hopefully each student enjoyed and learned a lot about fish and fish ecology from this series, with or without fish. Follow along closely to find the name of your fish. If there are any questions, feel free to call Project Oceanography at 1- 888-51-OCEAN. Before the broadcast The students should re-familiarize themselves with the body shape of the fish, mouth location, teeth, fins and scales. This will make it easier for the students to prepare questions to call us with. Conservation: Tag and Release Tag And Release = Fish For The Future Many areas believe strongly in the concept of tag and release. But tag and release done wrong is just tag and death. Releasing fish is good for the resource, but if the fish doesn't survive, then releasing a fish is nothing more than a feeble gesture. There are things to know before going fishing to keep the fish alive. Survival rate depends on technique. 1. Go Easy on the Fish Bait hooks are often swallowed and they are more likely to cause serious injury than lures, which tend to be mouth-hooked. Using single hooks will minimize lethal hooking and are easier and quicker to remove. Avoid using cadmium-plated hooks, which are toxic when they decompose.
