public $common_name;
public $flavor;
public $record_weight;

You created a constructor on trout, not fish. Try deleting trout extends fish and seeing if that works.

The line parent::construct($name, $flavor, $record); Parent should be the name of the parent class so in this case Fish::construct($name, $flavor, $record);
