Tropical Fish of Shinnecock Bay with Group for the East End

August 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$10
  •   

In the late summer a great variety of tropical fishes can be found in Shinnecock Bay. Last year we encountered Striped Burrfish, Spotfin Butterflyfish, Trunkfish, Band-Tailed Puffer, and Permit, just to mention a few of our exciting discoveries. Join us on this adventure – timed during low tide — as we wade with seines and dip nets in search of these southern visitors. Please wear water shoes! There will be opportunities to view the creatures closely in a temporary aquarium; all animals are released at the end of the program. Limited to 15 participants; reservations are required. Program fee $10 per person ($25 per family).

For reservations or more information, please contact Steve Biasetti at 631-765-6450 ext. 205 or sbiasetti@eastendenvironment.org.
