Abstract: 

The Fish Game by the Cloud Institute for Sustainability Education is a free online game designed to teach sustainability by demonstrating the problems overfishing can cause. Players fish for 10 days, earning money for each fish, along with other people doing the same. They learn the rate that the lake restocks the fish population over the 10-day period and how to balance that with their own needs as well as having to consider what impact others are having on the fish population.

Once you have completed the game, a debriefing screen comes up to summarize your results and pose follow up questions. Each time you play, the results of the game will differ depending on how you and the other fisher folk play.

The Cloud Institute for Sustainability Education is dedicated to "inspiring young people to think about the world, their relationship to it, and their ability to influence it in an entirely new way."
