The Natural Resource Science class had the opportunity to assist the Division of Wildlife Resources today with their annual Gilnet survey at Jordanelle reservoir. Students aided the DWR in pulling fish from the nets. Then, students assisted in measuring, weighing, and observing stomach content of the fish. Students also assisted the DWR in writing down the data for every fish in the nets. This was a great opportunity to get these students in a hands on opportunity where students could work with professionals in a career that these students are interested in.
