“I have been interested in fish my entire life. I now get to watch them through all of their life stages as the grow from egg to sometimes monsters – ie a 35 pound Salmon. Watching them eat as I throw feed at them. I enjoy working with the interns, students, and the tours that came through. It is enjoyable seeing other people’s faces light up learning about fish and how they are reared.”
