This expedition has a total of about 45 minutes of audio and video segments and you should take about 1 minute to answer each question, consequently, the entire expedition should take about 80 minutes to complete. You will need to move quickly through this material.
Objective: Students will gain an awareness of a crisis in one of the ocean’s most valuable resources, marine fisheries. It is a complex issue without a simple solution.
In the last expedition we discussed the ocean as a resource, but can these resources be overexploited?
We discussed the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone in the last expedition, here is a map of
the exclusive economic zones claimed by the many countries around the world Courtesy of The Sea Around Us Project
As you learn
about the resources of the sea, consider the difference between ownership
of the ocean and stewardship of its valuable resources......look
it up in a dictionary if necessary....
