Pax and the Scrumptious Squid

from Dolphin Research Center

Program image

Students will discuss how squid are classified, their role in the ecosystem, and their importance to dolphins. After their introduction to squid students will have the opportunity to watch an actual squid dissection and ask an educator questions. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss conservation and how they can help ensure that there is plenty of food for everyone in the ocean!

Program Details

Format

Program will open with an introduction by the instructors of the program and an overview of Dolphin Research Center.
Students will discuss the classification of squid with their instructor and the role that they play in the ecosystem. This includes how the squid are important to the dolphins at Dolphin Research Center.
The instructor will begin with an external anatomy lesson of the squid by pointing out the external appendages, organs and important adaptations on their subject.
The instructor will then begin the dissection to show the components of the internal anatomy. This may or may not include: the beak, the buccal bulb and esophagus, the gonads, ink sac and pen.
Students and the instructor will discuss the challenges that squid and other commercial fisheries face.
Students and the instructor will brainstorm and discuss ways that they can be responsible consumers of seafood to ensure that there is enough food for everyone in the ocean.

Objectives

Explain how squid are classified
Outline role that squid play in the ecosystem and food web
Identify the major points of external anatomy
Find and identify the major points of squid internal anatomy
Identify and discuss conservation issues related to squid and fisheries
Brainstorm and discuss strategies for being an informed consumer and helping to conserve fisheries

Ocean Literacy Principles
5A Ocean life ranges in size from the smallest living things, microbes, to the largest animal on Earth, blue whales.
5D Ocean biology provides many unique examples of life cycles, adaptations, and important relationships among organisms (symbiosis, predator-prey dynamics, and energy transfer) that do not occur on land.
6D Humans affect the ocean in a variety of ways. Laws, regulations, and resource management affect what is taken out and put into the ocean. Human development and activity leads to pollution (point source, nonpoint source, and noise pollution), changes to ocean chemistry (ocean acidification), and physical modifications (changes to beaches, shores, and rivers). In addition, humans have removed most of the large vertebrates from the ocean.
6G Everyone is responsible for caring for the ocean. The ocean sustains life on Earth and humans must live in ways that sustain the ocean. Individual and collective actions are needed to effectively manage ocean resources for all.
