|Starfish Student and Teacher Resource: Fishing Methods Fact Sheet|
The New Zealand Ministry of Fisheries provides a fact sheet describing fishing methods used around the world and the modern technology used for fish-finding and electronic navigation. Simple diagrams illustrate each item. Related fact sheets accessed via live links discuss fisheries conservation, marine fisheries, human impacts on fisheries, general ocean life, and several topics especially relevant to New Zealand fisheries. Resources for use by teachers and students in classroom settings for which the fact sheets provide background information are live linked. Some of these activities, such as determining the age of a fish from its scales, could be applied in an informal education setting. All fact sheets are downloadable as Microsoft Word documents, and fish catch data are downloadable as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
