    My favorite class this year is Ichthyology (study of fishes). Our lab involves going to various rivers and snorkeling to identify fishes and their habitats as well as identifying fishes in jars for the TVA. We are working on a group project in which we will do data research to incorporate a fishes’ life characteristics, locational information, and other things to explain why certain fishes are endangered/ extinct. In addition, our class will be presenting at the Appalachian Teaching Project Conference in Washington DC in November. Through our lab, we will be collecting fish and site information to develop a snorkeling guide book to help bring attention to the diverse freshwater region of Appalachia.
