Brook Trout Activities
Bears, Moose and wolves, three animals all Park visitors hope to see or hear. But what about fish like the Brook Trout? Not easy to observe in their watery environment, except during the spawning season, Brook Trout to many visitors are usually seen on the end of a hook, destined for a frying pan. Apart from how tasty they are, most people do not give much thought to how many fish might be in a lake, or how old the fish they just caught is. For fisheries biologists at the Algonquin Fisheries Assessment Unit these are things they regularly think about.
Below you will find activities to help you and your students to understand the complexities of estimating and aging one of Algonquin's less visible animals.
