NOAA Fisheries Service, an office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), recently published A Good Catch. This book was written at the middle school science level and has been reviewed by educators and NOAA scientists. It is available to you as a potential resource for the teachers and librarians in your state.
The book contains scientific information about managing our nation’s fisheries, protected species, and marine habitat; a glossary of terms; full color images; and is case bound (hard cover). There will be accompanying activities online available to the education community by the end of this school year.
