Join the crew of the research vessel Oceanic for an educational and scenic trip of the sound. Aquarium educators collect and examine animals from all levels of the water column: plankton gathered at the surface (and viewed with a video microscope), crabs and worms grabbed from the muddy bottom, and a variety of fish, crabs, lobsters and surprises brought up in the trawl net. Marine Life Study Cruises also contribute to local scientific research. Water-chemistry and weather readings are taken. And details about the animals brought onboard are entered into the Aquarium's Long Island Sound Biodiversity Project, a database on the physical and biological features of the Sound. Advance reservations recommended. Go online or call ext. 2206 to for more information or to purchase tickets.
