Welcome to Something Fishy

Welcome to the ‘Something Fishy’ website. Something Fishy is an Educational Programme, aimed at Primary school pupils aged between 10-13 years, which informs and educates students on fish, water, angling, and the environment and angling.

The ‘Something Fishy’ education programme was a concept originally developed in collaboration between the Central Fisheries Board (CFB) and Blackrock Education Centre (BEC). This team created lesson plans and activity sheets based on the theme of the ‘Life cycle of salmon’ - Bradán. It has since been developed, with web based resources and new lesson plans now available.
