Salmon Science – Growing a Leaper

Salmon Science – Growing a Leaper

This unit of work will provide students with content to explore how living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive. This unit will focus on farmed salmon. To farm salmon the optimal environmental conditions are replicated, to produce salmon as a good source of protein with high levels of omega-3 to form part of a healthy part of a human diet. The physical conditions of growing salmon will be explored and students will be provided with information on how these conditions are created in a managed environment.
