Fifth grade students from a district-wide magnet school met with forensic scientists at the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science's (NCCOS) Center for Coastal Environmental Health & Biomolecular Research Laboratory in Charleston, SC, for a question and answer session on marine wildlife issues. NCCOS's Kathy Moore and Trey Knott teamed up with Special Agent Al Samuels from the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement to field the students' insightful and enthusiastic questions on marine poaching, catch limits, mislabeled seafood, protected species and enforcement. The students chose the topic and conducted the interview as part of their final school project for the year and will collate the answers to create a display for educating the public on beingwise seafood consumersand reducing marine poaching.
