Over the last several weeks, Fish to Schools has been teaching 7th graders at Blatchley Middle School about salmon's journey from the stream to our plates. The students learned about salmon management, gutting and filleting salmon, how local processors operate, how to smoke salmon, and more. After learning this process, the students had incredible things to say about the local fish lunches they eat at school. Listen and read what these insightful students said:
"I like it because it takes amazing, it's fresh, and it comes from our local fishermen that spend time and
"It tastes really really good, and it's a good chance for people to try new things"
"I eat it because it's a way of saying thank you to the fishermen who catch the fish"
"Because it's healthy and good for you, and you feel good after you eat it"
"It supports our economy and it tastes good"
