Listuguj Supernova Students Learn Fish Sampling Methods

A group of students from the Supernova camp in Listuguj gathered along the shore near Moffat’s Landing. They focused their attention on staff from the Gespe’gewaq Mi’gmaq Resource Council (GMRC) who were introducing a sampling method called seining. A beach seine was used to catch small fish near the shore. As the group sorted through the net, they found species such as sand shrimp, and a school of baby gaspereau. The GMRC research team helped the Supernova students identify the species and talked about the importance of good fish handling. We would like to thank the Supernova camp for inviting us to be part of their learning experience.
