AQUARICA Back to 'Schooling' Promotion!

Phew, survived the first few days of school.  Whether its your first year or your last year of school, there is always anticipation for the first day...will Joe/Jane be in my class?...who will be my teacher?...when is my bus going to come?...sandwiches for lunch again!?!   Now that the stress of those first few days is over (for both the kids and parents), its time to relax and unwind a bit. 

We have a few Back to 'schooling' specials for you on, you guessed it, schooling and shoaling fish!  Generally, the term schooling refers to a group of fish who are swimming in the same direction in a co-ordinated manner.  Shoaling refers to a group of fish gathering for social purposes.

For example, if you were a fish and in a marching band (it does happen in Sponge Bob!), you would be schooling.   If you were a fish hanging out at a party, you would be shoaling; some fish are much more social than others.  Either case, schooling and shoaling fish generally enjoy and are happier in the company of their own kind or conspecifics!
