his is the second day in QUBS. The rain in the morning brought us lots of trouble, but we really appreciated the rainbow on the Lake Opinicon.
After breakfast, some of us just walked around and started to play Frisbee. A professor told us that this sport was created by students from Harvard and MIT who was then baking pies. Then Professor Wang Yuxiang gave us a lecture about fish biodiversity and conservation. We got something about categories, basic structure of fish and the relationship between fish and human. There are many threats to fishes, for example, habitat loss, climate change, over harvesting etc. Professor Wang also told that we can kwon how climate changes through fishes.
About 2:00 pm, our beautiful teaching assistant took us to a bay to practice catching fishes. Professor Wang showed his muscles at first (I am just kidding) and taught us how to use the net. We got fishes after some practice. The biggest fish we got today is a rock bass with a characteristic of red eyes. We all find that it’s much easier fishing in Canada. If you use the same way in china, you will got nothing.
下午两点左右，在助教Amada带领下我们步行来到了一个港湾捕鱼。王教授向我们展示了一下他的肌肉然后亲自下水教我们如何捕鱼。经过几次失败的拉网后我们终于有了不少的收获。经过鉴定，我们发现我们捕到了bluegill, pumpkinseed, rock bass, killifish, smallmouth bass,…… .我们捕到的最大的一条鱼是rock bass.最明显的特征是它的眼睛是红色的。我们发现加拿大的鱼是很容易捕到的，如果在中国也采用相同方式捕鱼，我们什么也捕不到。

At night, two of us have their seminars on coastal wetlands and bioremediation. Tomorrow we will go to Ottawa to visit the Canadian Museum of Nature. Hope a nice trip.
