In animation, a sign with the name of the show falls in the water.

The name of the show reads "Leo's Fish Heads."

A clip shows a group of friends fishing.

Leo, an animated fish says WE ARE THE FISHHEADS
EXPLORER CLUB,
SAYAT, CHRISTIAN,
AND ME, LEO.

Sayat is around 12. She has long curly brown hair in a high ponytail and wears a pink sweater, a neon green life jacket, gloves, and a cream cap hat.

Christian is around 12, with short straight light brown hair and wears an orange jacket, a blue life jacket, and rubber gloves.

Leo says TOGETHER, WE'RE GETTING WET
AND MUCKY
WORKING WITH EXPERTS AND
HELPING OUR AQUATIC FRIENDS.

A caption reads "TVO Kids presents: Fish Heads explorer club."

Leo says EACH DAY WE'RE ON A NEW MISSION
EXPLORING WHAT'S GOING ON
ALONG THE SHORELINES
AND UNDER THE WAVES.
SPLISH, SPLASH, GRAB YOUR BOOTS
AND YOU CAN BE A FISHHEAD TOO.
(WATER BURBLES)

Leo says UP, UP, AND... UGH.
UH, FLYING IS WAY HARDER
THAN IT LOOKS.
OOH! MAYBE I NEED A CAPE.
OR...OOH! BIGGER FINS.
BUT THE FLYING SUPER FISH
AT THE TOP
OF OUR FISHFINDER LIST TODAY
MAKES LIFTOFF
LOOK EASY AS PIE,
EVEN WITH THOSE
ITTY-BITTY FINS.
IT'S THE REDSIDE DACE.
THE REDSIDE DACE IS A SMALL,
BUT MIGHTY FISH
THAT STANDS OUT FROM
THE OTHER MINNOWS,
BECAUSE OF ITS COOL RED STRIPE,
AND BECAUSE IT CAN FLY!
THAT TINY FISH PROPELS ITSELF
RIGHT OUT OF THE WATER,
TO CATCH ITS DINNER.
FIN-CREDIBLE!
BUT THE REDSIDE DACE HAS
ANOTHER SUPERPOWER, OH, YES.
IT'S AN INDICATOR SPECIES,
WHICH MEANS, WHEN THEIR
POPULATION IS LOW,
THE HEALTH OF THE WATER
NEEDS IMPROVEMENT.
SAYAT AND CHRISTIAN ARE MEETING
UP WITH DOUG AND KRYSTAL,
OF ONTARIO STREAMS.

An animated map zooms in on the Rouge River, in Richmond Hill, Ontario.

Leo says THEY'RE GOING TO SEE
HOW MANY OF THESE TINY,
FLYING FISHES THEY CAN FIND,
AND THEN, WORK ON A PROJECT
THAT WILL HELP
WITH THE REDSIDE DACE'S
HABITAT.
SPLISH, SPLASH, FLY AT IT,
FISHHEADS!

A caption reads "Doug Forder. Ontario streams biologist."

Doug is in his fifties, with short wavy gray hair and wears a blue shirt, gloves, and a fisherman's overall.

He says OKAY GUYS, WE'RE GONNA BE
USING THIS BACKPACK
ELECTROFISHER WHEN
WE'RE ELECTROFISHING.
IT DOES PUT A MILD ELECTRIC
SHOCK INTO THE STREAM.
SO YOU HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL.
YOU HAVE TO WEAR CHEST WADERS
LIKE YOU'RE DOING.
WE'RE WEARING RUBBER GLOVES
LIKE THIS,
IT ISOLATES YOU FROM
THE ELECTRICITY,
SO YOU WON'T GET A SHOCK, OKAY?
WHEN WE GO OUT INTO THE WATER,
WE'RE GONNA TEST ALL
THE SAFETY EQUIPMENT
THAT WARNS YOU THAT THERE'S
ELECTRICITY IN THE WATER.

Sayat says WILL THE BACKPACK UNIT HELP
US FIND A FISH IN THE CREEK?

The caption changes to "Krystal Athanassiou. Ontario Streams biologist."

Krystal is in her thirties, with above the shoulder, slightly wavy blond hair and wears a blue T-shirt, a fisherman's overall and a cap.

Krystal says YEAH, SEE THIS ANODE,
IT WILL SEND A SLIGHT
ELECTRICAL CURRENT
INTO THE STREAM.

Doug says THE ANODE SLIGHTLY STUNS
THE FISH,
ALLOWING US TO SCOOP THEM UP
AND THEN WE CAN SEE HOW WELL
THEY'RE DOING.
YOU READY TO GO?

The kids say YEAH!

Doug says ALRIGHT.

Leo says SAFETY CHECK!
(WHISTLE BLOWS)
YOU FISHHEADS KNOW TO WEAR
YOUR PFD WHEN AROUND THE WATER,
AND OF COURSE, GOOD RUBBER
BOOTS, OR HIP WADERS.
BUT YOU MAY NOT REALIZE THAT
A GOOD PAIR OF POLARIZED SHADES
CAN BE REALLY HELPFUL
ON A STREAM ADVENTURE.
EVEN ON A GREY DAY,
THEY CAN HELP REMOVE
THE GLARE FROM THE WATER,
SO YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SEE MUCH
BETTER WHAT YOU'RE STEPPING ON,
AND YOU CAN AVOID UNEXPECTED
LARGE ROCKS
THAT COULD TRIP YOU UP.

Clips show images of the water with and without polarized shades.

Leo says BUT ALMOST BETTER THAN THAT,
IT'LL HELP YOU SEE US FISH
SCOOTIN' BY.

Sayat says WE'LL PUT OUR FISH EYES ON.

Leo says SO KEEP YOUR
WELL-PROTECTED EYES OPEN
FOR ME ON YOUR NEXT FISHHEADS
ADVENTURE.
OOH! AND OF COURSE, THEY'LL
MAKE YOU LOOK SUPER COOL.
OH YEAH! MHMM.
(WHISTLE BLOWS)

Christian says I WANNA SEE SOME OF THESE
SUPER MINNOWS.

Doug says WELL, WITH LUCK, WE WILL.
WE'VE GOT THE SUPER COOL
BACKPACK ELECTROFISHER
WE CAN CATCH THEM WITH.

Christian says WOW, FLYING FISH,
AND A SUPER COOL GADGET,
BEST DAY EVER!
(SPLASHING)

Krystal says POINT FOUR ZERO.

Doug says WE'RE GONNA TEST
SOME SWITCHES ON IT.
PUT ME UP TO 300.

Krystal says GOOD.
ANNUNCIATOR AND LIGHT, WORKING.

Doug says ALL THE SAFETY CHECKS
ARE COMPLETE,
LET'S CATCH SOME FISH.

Christian and Sayat say YEAH!

Doug says SO WHEN YOU SEE A FISH,
SCOOP IT UP,
AND BRING IT BACK OUT
OF THE WATER AGAIN.
YOU CAN HOLD IT UP,
IF YOU SEE ANOTHER FISH,
YOU CAN SCOOP AGAIN, OKAY?

Leo says GOOD LUCK, TEAM!
I'VE GOT MY FINS CROSSED
YOU'LL FIND SOME REDSIDE DACE.
(MACHINE BEEPING)

Doug says STAY BACK, STAY BACK.

Sayat says OH, OKAY.

Doug says RIGHT BESIDE ME.
TO THE RIGHT, RIGHT...

Christian says OH, THERE'S ONE!

Doug says SCOOP THEM UP. THAT'S IT.

Sayat says OOH! YOU HAVE GOOD EYES!

Leo says OOH, I HOPE THE FISHHEADS
ARE NETTING
SOME MIGHTY RED BEAUTIES.
THEY'RE HARD TO FIND
THESE DAYS.
EVEN SOME OF DOUG'S TEAM
HAS NEVER SEEN THEM.
WHEW!

Doug says YOU READY? OKAY.

Christian says THIS IS AWESOME!

Doug says YOU HAVE TO START SCOOPIN'.
FIGURE EIGHTS.
OKAY, CAN YOU PUT ME UP TO F5?

Krystal says RIGHT.

Doug says THERE! RIGHT THERE!
RIGHT THERE!
(SPLASHING, MACHINE BEEPING)
YEP, THERE'S ONE, GRAB HIM!

Sayat says TWO! YES!

Doug says OH! ANOTHER ONE. TWO MORE.

Christian says TWO, NICE.

Doug says ONE AT THE BOTTOM.
ONE UNDERNEATH, RIGHT
AT THE BOTTOM.

Christian says THERE'S ONE.

Doug says GOOD SCOOPIN'!

Sayat says TWO, TWO!

Doug says TWO! YOU GOT THEM BOTH!

Christian says THERE WE GO.

Sayat says YAY!

Christian says OH, YOU CAUGHT A LOT!

Doug says ALRIGHT, GOOD JOB.
OKAY, SO LET'S SEE WHAT KIND
OF FISH WE HAVE HERE.
WE'VE GOT SOME WHITE SUCKERS,
WE'VE GOT CREEK CHUBB.
IN FACT, I THINK WE HAVE
A REDSIDE DACE.

Sayat says AWESOME!

Doug says WE'LL PUT HIM IN OUR
FISH VIEWER.
AND THERE'S A REDSIDE DACE.

Sayat says HOW CAN YOU TELL?

Doug says WELL, HE'S GOT A SLIGHT
RED STRIPE.
IT'S NOT VERY BRIGHT RIGHT NOW.
AND HE'S GOT A VERY LARGE
MOUTH.

Sayat says OH YEAH.

Doug says SO THEY CAN JUMP OUT OF
THE WATER AND CATCH INSECTS.

Leo says HEY FISHHEADS, YOU MAY NOTICE
THAT THE REDSIDE DACE
ISN'T LOOKIN' SO RED.
THAT'S BECAUSE A FISHES' COLOUR
WILL FADE, OR BE DARKER,
DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH LIGHT
THEY ARE EXPOSED TO.
BEING IN THE BRIGHT SUN,
AND IN A WHITE BUCKET,
HIS COLOUR HAS FADED,
SO HE'LL BLEND BETTER
WITH HIS ENVIRONMENT.
YEP, JUST ANOTHER REDSIDE DACE
SUPERPOWER.

Doug says HEY GUYS, GREAT WORK.

Christian says SWEET!

Sayat says THAT WAS A GOOD CATCH.

Doug says GREAT CATCH.

Christian says YEAH.

Sayat says WE CAUGHT A LOT, RIGHT?

Doug says WE CAUGHT A TON
OF REDSIDE DACE.

Krystal says DO YOU WANT ME TO
START PROCESSING THE REDSIDE?

Doug says PLEASE.

He measures the fish and says 73!

A man says 73.

Doug weighs it and says THREE GRAMS.

The man says THREE GRAMS.
(CAMERA CLICKS)

Doug says BEAUTIFUL FISH.

He measures another one and says 95!

The man says 95.

Doug says SEVEN GRAMS.

The man says HOLY!

Doug measures a third fish and says 93.

The man says 93.

Christian says IT'S A JUMPER, ALRIGHT.
WOW, THEY REALLY ARE RED.
(CAMERA CLICKS)

Sayat says WOW, THAT'S A BIG ONE.

Doug says HUGE... FOR A REDSIDE
DACE.
THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL, AREN'T THEY?
I'VE NEVER SEEN THIS MANY
REDSIDE DACE IN ONE LOCATION.

Sayat says WHAT'S THE MOST YOU HAVE
SEEN?

Doug says 16.

Sayat says REALLY?
THIS IS A BIT MORE.

Doug says QUITE A LOT MORE.
GET A SHOT OF HIM. BEAUTIFUL.
LET'S LET THESE GUYS GO
BACK INTO THE STREAM.

Sayat says THEIR SUPPER.

Doug says TIME FOR SUPPER.

Christian says GOODBYE, MIGHTY MINNOWS.

Sayat says ENJOY YOUR SUPER DINNER.

They release the fish.

The caption changes to "Fish talk with Leo."

Leo says EVERY HOME NEEDS TO BE
SPRUCED UP
FROM TIME TO TIME,
EVEN FISH HOMES.
AND ALTHOUGH IT CAN BE
HARD WORK,
IT'S SO WORTH IT!
DID YOU KNOW THAT
THE REDSIDE DACE
IS ENDANGERED BECAUSE THEIR
HABITAT IS GETTING DIRTY?
EWW! WHEN THE SHORE NO LONGER
HAS TREES AROUND IT,
SAND AND DIRT EASILY TRICKLE
INTO THE WATER.
WITH ALL THIS MUCK
FLOATING AROUND,
THE REDSIDE DACE CAN'T SEE
THE FLYING BUGS
ABOVE THE WATER
THAT THEY EAT.
THE RIVERS AND STREAMS
AROUND TORONTO
ARE ONE OF THE ONLY AREAS
IN CANADA
WHERE THE REDSIDE DACE
CAN BE FOUND.
IN ORDER TO SURVIVE,
THEY NEED CLEAR,
COLD STREAMS,
WITH DEEP HOLES TO HIDE IN.
THAT'S WHY RESTORING
THE SHORELINE,
AND THE STREAMS
IS SO IMPORTANT,
AND THE FISHHEADS ARE ROLLING
UP THEIR SLEEVES
AND GETTING DOWN TO WORK,
SO THE REDSIDE DACE
CAN FLY AGAIN.

Christian says IT WAS AMAZING TO SEE SO MANY
FLYING FISH TODAY.

Sayat says I KNOW, IT'S SO COOL.
BUT WHY DO THEY FLY?

Doug says REDSIDE DACE JUMP
OUT OF THE STREAM
TO CATCH FLYING INSECTS
OUT OF THE GRASS.
IT MAKES THEM UNIQUE AMONG
MINNOWS IN ONTARIO.

Christian says WOW, IT MUST BE REALLY HARD
TO FLY AND CATCH OUR DINNER.

Sayat says THEY'RE THE SUPER FISH
OF THE CREEK.

Krystal says THEY CERTAINLY ARE.
BY DOING RESTORATION WORK
IN THIS AREA, WE'RE HOPING
TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO COME BACK
TO THIS PART OF THE CREEK.

Doug says LET'S GET TO WORK.

Sayat says WE FISHHEADS ARE ALWAYS READY
TO HELP A FIN FRIEND.

Christian says ALL FINS ON DECK.

They high-five.

(RUSTLING)

Christian says WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE,
EXACTLY?

They start piling up dead trees on the river bank.

Krystal says THESE CHRISTMAS TREES
ARE GONNA HELP PROTECT
THIS BANK FROM EROSION.
AS THE WATER FLOWS
THROUGH THIS AREA,
AND SOIL IN THE WATER
WILL DROP INTO THIS AREA,
AND PROTECT THE BANK.

The caption changes to "Erosion: the wearing away of the banks of a stream or river."

Sayat says WHY DO WE NEED TO PROTECT
THE BANK?

Krystal says AS THE SOIL FALLS OFF
THE BANK FROM EROSION,
IT WILL MAKE THE WATER CLOUDY,
AND IT MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT
FOR THE REDSIDE DACE TO SEE
WHAT THEY'RE GONNA EAT.

Doug says OKAY, WE'RE GONNA PUT THIS
EARTH ANCHOR IN THE GROUND,
WHICH WILL HELP HOLD
THE TREE IN PLACE.

Krystal says SO THIS IS A SLIDE HAMMER,
SO MAKE SURE YOU HOLD IT
NICE AND TIGHT.
YOU'RE GONNA PUT ALL
OF YOUR WEIGHT INTO IT.
(THUDS)
JUST LIKE THAT,
NICE AND STRONG.

Ssays OKAY. (LAUGHS)

Leo says WAY TO USE THOSE FISHHEADS
MUSCLES
TO MAKE SURE THAT OLD CHRISTMAS
TREE IS ANCHORED TO THE BANK.

Christian says GOOD JOB, SAYAT.

Sayat says IT WAS A GOOD WORKOUT.

Krystal says IT IS A GOOD WORKOUT.
(THUDS)

As she sticks the hammer deep into the bank she says NOW IT'S SHORTER THAN ME.

Krystal says YOU'RE DOING GREAT.
(THUDDING)

Doug says OKAY, NOW WE HAVE TO PULL
THE POLE
BACK OUT OF THE GROUND.
(BOTH GRUNT WITH EFFORT)

Krystal wraps a cable around the tree and says I'M GONNA GO AROUND
THE TREE ONCE,
THAT'LL HOLD IT STRONG ENOUGH.
AND WOULD YOU MIND PUSHING
DOWN ON THIS TREE?
WE'LL GET IT NICE AND CLOSE
TO THE GROUND.

Sayat says WHAT IS THAT FOR?

Krystal says THIS IS A SWAG TOOL,
OR A CRIMPER.
IT'LL CRUSH THE ALUMINUM CRIMP
INTO THE AIRCRAFT CABLE,
SO IT'S NOT GONNA GO ANYWHERE.
NOW WE'LL NEED A CRIMP.

Dug cuts the cable and says AH! GOOD JOB.

Sayat and Christian say THANKS.

Christian says WOW, THAT WAS REALLY
HARD WORK.

Sayat says NOT AS HARD AS FLYING
LIKE A FISH,
BUT DEFINITELY A SUPER WORKOUT.

Christian says YOU GOT THAT RIGHT.

They high-five and say HIGH FIN!

Doug says WELL, WE SAW 35 REDSIDE DACE,
AND I'VE NEVER SEEN THAT MANY
BEFORE IN ONE SPOT,
AND WE FINISHED THIS
RESTORATION PROJECT.
GREAT WORK, EVERYBODY.

Sayat says WE HELPED THE SUPER FISH!

Christian says NOW IT SOUNDS LIKE TIME
TO DO A FISHHEADS HANDSHAKE.

They do a handshake and say FISHHEADS!

Krystal says OH COOL, SHOW ME!

They do a handshake and say FISHHEADS!

Doug says ME TOO!

They do a handshake and say FISHHEADS!

(ALL LAUGH)

Sayat says LOOK THERE!

Christian says OH MY-IS THAT A REDSIDE DACE?
(SPLASHING)

Sayat says AND AGAIN!

Christian says ENJOY YOUR SUPPER,
MIGHTY RED!

A sign reads "Fish heads alert."

Leo says ATTENTION, FELLOW FISHHEADS!
CHRISTIAN AND SAYAT
DID SOME SUPER WORK TODAY.
TO ALL YOU SUPER FISHHEADS
OUT THERE,
THE BEST WAY TO HELP
OUR FLYING FISH FRIENDS
IS TO LET YOUR LOCAL WATER
CONSERVATION AUTHORITIES KNOW
IF YOU SEE THESE RED BEAUTIES
IN YOUR LOCAL RIVER.
THEY ARE A SPECIES AT RISK,
SO ONCE WE KNOW
WHERE THEY ARE LIVING,
WE CAN MAKE SURE THEIR RIVER
HOMES ARE LOOKED AFTER,
AND MAINTAINED TO KEEP IT
JUST LIKE THOSE MIGHTY
REDSIDE DACE LIKE IT.
OKAY.

Wearing a cape, Leo tries to fly and says OOH!
UGGGH! AAAAH!
AH! OH WELL.
FISHHEADS, WE MAY NOT BE ABLE
TO FLY LIKE THE REDSIDE DACE,
BUT WE CAN ALWAYS KEEP
SWIMMING.

Music plays as the end credits roll.
