This spring, students at Mastery Charter Thomas Campus planned and ran two focus groups for community members to determine fish preferences. Students asked the focus group participants what kind of fish they would be interested in purchasing, what prices they would be willing to pay, and whether they were interested in whole fish, fillets, or both. Students live-interpreted into four languages (Pashtun, Chin, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish). Participants were interested in a range of species, and some were interested primarily in whole fish, while others were interested primarily in fillets.
A summary report of the focus group results will be available soon!
