Please help! (PHP classes)

It says "Bummer! Be sure you include the fish's common name in the return value from getInfo. Use $this to reference the current object.". Can someone help me out???


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