Event description: Cruise out for close encounters with crabs, fish, squid and always a few surprises when you come aboard The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk's research vessel for a new season of Marine Life Study Cruises. These outings reveal what is, to many, a surprising diversity of marine life just off the shores of Long Island Sound. Aquarium educators put participants to work in collecting and examining animals from all levels of the water column: tiny wriggly plankton gathered at the surface (and viewed with a videomicroscope), little crabs and worms grabbed from the muddy bottom, and an always-unique variety of fish, crabs, squid, lobsters and surprises brought up in the Oceanic's trawl net. Aquarium Study Cruises are good for ages 8 and older. Advance reservations are strongly recommended. Walk-up tickets will be sold, space permitting. April 26-August 31.
