Hi Sawsan, This challenge requires some fancy string concatenation, but basically your function getInfo() needs to reference the Fish object in the following manner:

public function getInfo (){
  return "A $this->common_name is an $this->flavor flavored fish. The world record weight is $this->record_weight";
}
