One of the most fulfilling parts of an Aquarist’s work is raising baby fish and invertebrates to adulthood. Here at the Aquarium of the Pacific, we have successfully bred many different species of animals.

A decade ago this summer, I spent two hours in the water caring for a distressed Stejneger’s Beaked Whale. In this week’s blog I will be sharing some of my observation notes from my encounter with this mysterious, rarely seen alive cetacean.

Hi there, fish-fans! My name is Chris Corpus and I’m very excited to be joining the team of bloggers here at the Aquarium of the Pacific.
I have been studying and caring for fish as a hobby for over 10 years. I have volunteered at the Aquarium for almost 2 years now, most of it as an aquarist in the Husbandry department. What does an aquarist do? Well, essentially being an aquarist is simply being a glorified janitor for fish!
