Help me with this quiz [6/7]

I can't pass the quiz, I have no idea what is wrong with my code



class Fish
    public $common_name;
    public $flavor;
    public $record_weight;

    function __construct($name, $flavor, $record){
        $this->common_name = $name;
        $this->flavor = $flavor;
        $this->record_weight = $record;

    public function getInfo() {
        $output  = "The {$this->common_name} is an awesome fish. ";
        $output .= "It is very {$this->flavor} when eaten. ";
        $output .= "Currently the world record {$this->common_name} weighed {$this->record_weight}.";
        return $output;

  class Trout extends Fish{

    public $species;
    function __construct($name, $flavor, $record, $species){
    parent::__construct($name, $flavor, $record);
      $this->species = $species;

      function getInfo(){
         return "$this->species $this->common_name tastes $this->flavor.  The record $this->species $this->common_name weighed $this->record_weight.";


$brook_trout = new Trout('Trout', 'Delicious', '14 pounds 8 ounces', 'Brook');
$brook_trout = new getInfo();

You have to declare getInfo() outside the constructor function.

.... the last line is incorrect to pass the last step.

It asked you to echo the getInfo() of $brook_trout object.

echo $brook_trout->getInfo();
