A conservation lesson filled with fun and fish
Middlesex County is nearly surrounded by water, but many local children have never fished from a boat or even been in a boat on the water. The Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) fixed that for 19 such children on Saturday when it took them on a fishing adventure aboard a charter boat. The kids, ages 10-16, enjoyed seeing different species of fish that were caught, including a small shark.
