Sixth-Graders Visit DNR Staff At Fish Survey Site

WARROAD, Minn. — Surveys such as the fall gillnetting assessment the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conducts every September on Lake of the Woods also offer learning opportunities.

Allen Edman, a Warroad elementary school teacher who grew up on the Northwest Angle of Lake of the Woods, last week brought students from his sixth-grade Minnesota history and science class to the site where DNR fisheries crews were sampling fish they’d caught near Warroad.

During the field trip, the students learned about the survey and the science behind it. They also  learned about the history of commercial and sportfishing on Lake of the Woods and how the DNR sets sportfishing limits on the lake, Edman said.

Judging by the photos, the sixth-graders had fun in the process.
