Students in Year 12 Marine Studies put their fishing skills to the test, casting a line at Parsley Bay and Rose Bay this week. This takes the theory coursework beyond the classroom, as students have developed their understanding of fish size and bag limits, knot tying, rod and reel maintenance, recreational fishing techniques and fish stock conservation strategies in Australia.
There were a few fish biting on our second day of fishing, with Tom Kenny catching and releasing a beautiful box fish, and Gabriel Woodward catching, not one but two trevally, unfortunately too small to keep.
We are hoping on our next fishing trip to La Perouse, we will reel in a fish big enough for us to keep and cook up on the barbeques at school!
