Elementary school students analyze where seafood comes from, and then learn about the concept of sustainable fisheries. The lesson culminates with a research project where they discover how one of Washington’s fisheries are managed.

Check the supporting materials for a recipe book for oysters and clams from a WDFW shellfish biologist. Make sure to check the lesson for other sustainable seafood recipes and encourage your learners to discover Washington seafood as they cook with an adult in their home.
