The Last Fish

A shoal of 10,000 fish made by Bristol school children will be exhibited at the M Shed in June 2022.

‘When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money’ 


Bristol Pay is seeing off the Bristol Pound scheme with an exciting project to re-use the old notes. Classes at Key Stages 2 and 3 will be able to register and receive a link for lesson plans for ‘The Last Fish’ project. The plans show how children can cut the fish out similar to shown below, and these fish will be exhibited at M Shed in June.

The lessons will also help children engage with questions such as:

  • What is money?
  • What is the economy?
  • What do these have to do with the Last Fish?

Along with a short background of what they are cutting out – Bristol Pounds!

The Bristol Pound notes will be delivered to the schools and the slides, lesson plan and teachers’ notes will be available to download.

To register email Diana Finch (Bristol Pay director),, with the school’s name and address, and an estimate of the number of children who will participate.


The deadline for the cut out fishes to be collected is 31st May 2022.
