Data analysis game in which students learn more about aquaculture.
Keeping a population of captive salmon in the area can negatively influence the wild population. The game demonstrates what happens if young salmon in captivity get infected with lice and spread the disease through the wild population of salmon. After playing different scenarios, the students have to show the results in several graphs. All materials needed for the lesson can be found on the website (see Reference Material).
