Students dissect sharks for fishery class

On Feb. 20, as part of Lee Cain’s fisheries course, students from Astoria High School dissected juvenile salmon sharks (lamna ditropis) and blue sharks (prionace glauca). The fish had stranded and died on Clatsop County beaches, and were retrieved by the Seaside Aquarium. Students worked in pairs, and gained hands-on experience with assistance from Cain and aquarium staff.
