Fish species photographs


Ways to use this resource

These photos can be used as a resource for the scientific drawing exercise (p14), for the representing data exercise (p 12) or for other activities including, for example – comparing and contrasting fish types; observing similarities between similar fish types, e.g. members of the wrasse family.
