Nancy Caruso, founder of Get Inspired! Inc., said that the students get attached and are successful in maintaining the operation, but they care so much about the fish that when there is a tragedy such as a fish death, students cry.
"I make them very aware that we are all this animal has," said Caruso. "They're scared to death to do something wrong."
This is Caruso's goal: To create a connection so strong between the seabass and the students that by the time students release the fish, they've gained not only knowledge about an ecosystem, but a passion for being stewards of the ocean.
Keeping the fish alive is more than just feeding them daily; students, with the help of teachers, Caruso and Mike Shane, a research scientist at Hubbs-SeaWorld, built the entire operation.
Caruso said her organization recently received a grant to put another white seabass tank in Warner Middle School, though it will be smaller than the high school's.
Hubbs-SeaWorld has been making the effort to grow white seabass ever since the late 1980s, when there was a sharp decline in the number of the species in the ocean, said Caruso.
"If kids don't go on that journey, they don't build that attachment," said Caruso.
