Robert Irving and "Fish Friends" release salmon into Mooney's Pond
52 PEI schoolchildren from grades 1 to 5 released salmon into Mooney's Pond on Friday, 06 June. They raised the fish in their classrooms, learning a lot about conservation, along the way. The day was also marked by a BBQ, a scavenger hunt, and a trail walk, to enhance the conservation message.
Chief Brian Francis, Abegweit First Nation, and Robert Irving, of Cavendish Farms, were there to assist the children in the fish release. Cavendish Farms, in partnership with Abegweit First Nation, has supported the ‘Fish Friends’ program in eight PEI schools over the last several months. The program, which allows children to raise salmon in the classroom from eggs to fry, incorporates learning activities, and encourages conservation practices.
