I'll Trade You a Bag of Chips, Two Cookies, and $60,000 for Your Tuna Fish Sandwich

This lesson introduces the concept of supply and demand for fishery resources, using tuna as an example. Provides background information and creates scenarios for student participation, role playing first as a consumer purchasing increasingly expensive fish, then as a fisherman trying to catch and sell fish. Through two online graphing exercises, students see how demand, supply and price are linked. Discussion questions tackle impacts of declining fisheries on the equation. Assessment and extension activities are offered.
