Striped bass have a lot to teach us, not only about themselves but about the ecosystem in which they live. Steven Zottoli, Whitman Center Scientist at MBL, hopes to bring these lessons to middle- and high-school classrooms through a new outreach program based at MBL. His web site, StripedBassMagic.org, features information on the striped bass including genetics, migration, predator-prey interactions
