Ghostbusting in the Chesapeake

This Ghostbusting in the Chesapeake lesson plan also includes:

Ghost pots, fishing gear lost during crabbing expeditions, continue to trap crabs that are never collected. Increase your budding ecologists' awareness of human impact on the environment as well as conservation efforts using this resource. Links to an interesting video, a slide show, actual fishing gear data, and a worksheet are provided. You can use this not only in a marine biology unit, but also in any situation where you want to get learners thinking about human impact.
