On September 25, Cook AZ visited the Viking Village fishery in Barnegat, NJ. We learned about the different kinds of sea life they fish and talked about the effects of Sandy and other natural disasters on the fishing community. We were able to watch them pull several large fish off a recently returned fishing boat for evaluation. We learned about the different grades of fish and other factors, such as sharks, that can affect the quality of the product they are able to produce. They are also working on research using Confined Animal Feeding Operations that we were able to look at and discuss.
