Fish and People is a 5 module video education series with accompanying lesson plans and teaching resources developed for use in the Solomon Islands education system. It uses animation to visualise invisible life cycle and fishery management concepts.
One of the key problems associated with communicating fisheries management concepts is the invisibility of much of the life cycle associated with coral reef species.
Fish and People overcome this problem by creating a comprehensive animated explanation of:
- (1) reef species life cycles,
- (2) larval dispersal / planktonic concepts,
- (3) population biology processes,
- (4) the application of the above to fishery and marine protected area management.
Save Coral Reefs supports these kind of initiatives…
A special thank you Simon Foale and Russell Kelley for this very nice educational tool.
