Students at Windsor Park Elementary School were able to go fishing Wednesday thanks to the non-profit Saltwater-fisheries Enhancement Association.
It was part of the SEA's Kid Fish Day. The Association took a little bit of the ocean with them to the school to allow students the chance to fish and interact with the animals.
A large saltwater pool was installed in the Windsor Park Elementary School pavilion and stocked with fish for the children to catch. Of course, fishing poles, bait and tackle were also provided.
Students who didn't want to fish were able to check out the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department's "touch tank", which was filled with shell fish, sea urchins and other marine life for the students to interact with. Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi was also there with their "Wetlands on Wheels" trailer, which allows them to help teach students about our local wetlands.
The Texas Game Wardens even showed up with a baby alligator!
