Long Island Sound: Marine Biologists at Work!

A beautiful September day at Hammonasset State Park to seine for life in Long Island Sound!

Glastonbury E. Hartford Magnet School fifth grade marine biologists worked to answer questions they have about life living along our Connecticut coastline. A big thank you to all of our teachers and adult volunteers who helped make this investigation possible!

Some of the animals studied: Blue fish, Pipefish, a Lizard fish, Black Fish, Silversides, Northern King Fish, Hermit Crabs and even a Sea Robin!

Danielle and Caeley added, “We caught the largest Lady Crab ever in the seine net!”  “It’s a male, said one student!”

Every year teachers from around the state of Connecticut enthusiastically participate each year in a Sea Grant sponsored workshop to “fine tune” the logistics of organizing student scientists at the shore while making connections to the Next Generation Science Standards!

ONLY $10 for workshop! Contact: Donna Rand email drand@crec.org

Teachers participating in the workshop receive Teacher Resource and Curriculum Guide, materials and equipment such as seine nets, geology equipment and field guides and materials to set up their own student investigations at the beach.

Why we care about Long Island Sound?

Keeping the ocean clean is one of the ways to care about the ocean and the animals, like seagulls, who live there!
