Engineering and Sustainability in First Nations Fish Harvesting Traditions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this session, we explore the mathematics and engineering behind intertidal modifications (“fish traps”) located in Tla’amin Nation territory. We study the relationship between location, culture, biology and how the Tla’amin Nation have used knowledge on the land, the tides and marine wildlife to harvest fish. We have implemented a programming code-based application with a mathematical model that simulates population size of salmon over the course of ten years with no harvesting, low harvesting and greedy harvesting to facilitate engagement and exploration. Teachers will be provided with lesson plans and interactive activities to learn about the Coast Salish fish trap traditions in their classrooms.
