Restaurant Quality, Sustainable Seafood = Happy, Healthy Animals!

We want all of our animals here at the Aquarium to be happy and healthy!  A key component in achieving that goal is to make sure each animal is given a high-quality, well-balanced diet.  As you might have guessed, a huge part of a marine mammal volunteer’s day is spent preparing the food that the animals will be eating that day.  This is actually a little more work than most people think, so I thought it would be fun to share some details about what our animals eat and how we go about preparing it for them.

Andrew, an Aquarium graphic designer and our webmaster, to the rescue!

You may think that the bird population around the Aquarium consists of sparrows, gulls, and rock pigeons. I have a story to tell about the rescue of an egret by a member of the Aquarium’s ‘dry side’ staff.
