Marine Conservation: Finfish Restoration Project

The Finfish Restoration Project was established as part of the 7th and 8th grade science curriculum at Westport Middle School. The goal was to demonstrate that a species of flounder could be bred and raised in a closed recirculation system in order to restock the waters in our area. Students were responsible for water quality analysis, monitoring dissolved oxygen, ph, ammonia, nitrates, salinity and for monitoring feeding and growth rates.

Westport Middle School students work in cooperation with Durfee High School in Fall River, MA, to learn about other species of fish to make comparisons and share information.

This project promotes and encourages environmental awareness in the community about the threatened population of a species of fish that were once abundant in Westport and creates a generation of environmental stewards who will impact their local environment for years to come.
