Description:

In this data analysis activity, learners quantify the abundance and distribution of sea scallops in and adjacent to the Mid-Atlantic closed areas. Learners use data from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science to create a bar graph and analyze the effect closing the areas to fishing had on the sea scallop population. This activity guide includes discussion questions for learners to consider the value of closed areas in fisheries management.
