http://sanctuaries.noaa.gov/education/voicesofthebay/teachingmaterials/balance.html - In this activity, students will take part in a simulated fishery, harvesting California Market Squid - Doryteuthis opalescens (formerly Loligo opalescens) - that are common in Monterey Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Because of their quick response time to environmental conditions, Market Squid can provide an interesting example of ecosystem-based management at work. Student groups will take on various roles in a simulated fishing community, making decisions while also facing a range of natural and man-made challenges. These decisions will impact their own well being in addition to the well being of the natural squid population as a shared or “common” resource. Maintaining a balance that sustains both the squid population and the squid fishery, which relies on that population, will prove to be challenging. Students will analyze their decisions and recognize the difficulty associated with maintaining a healthy “balance in the bay.” This can easily be altered to salmon fisheries!
