Event description:

Meet an amazing variety of fish, crabs, mollusks and other creatures brought up right out of Long Island Sound right before your eyes during a new season of Marine Life Encounter Cruises with The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk. The 2.5-hour Marine Life Encounter Cruises reveal what is, to many, a surprising diversity of marine life just off the shores in 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 on a large monitor via a videomicroscope), little crabs and worms grabbed from the muddy bottom, and a variety of fish, crabs, squid, mollusks and surprises brought up in a trawl net.
