Mackerel Dissection

7 Oct 22

Strong stomachs and inquisitive minds were required in last week’s science club, as students from Years 7 and 8 took part in a dissection.  Our new biology teacher Dr Clayton held a demonstration ahead of giving students the chance to cut, slice and analyse the fish.  Students were amazed when they discovered wriggly nematode worms inside the mackerel; a parasite of dolphins and seals, nematodes nest in mackerel in the hope they’ll be eaten by them.  However, students learned that these parasites are no so healthy for humans, so were encouraged to ensure mackerel is always gutted and cleaned before eating!
