Visit the MRC

Many of you enjoy coming to the first floor tank room to view the variety of live marine animals in our facility. We always encourage this activity but ask you to please honor the following guidelines when you visit:

1. Restrict your visit to the front section of the tank room (do not venture beyond the large oval squid tanks) and do not put your hands in the water or adjust any water lines. In particular, please do not enter the distant 2/3 of the tank room because these are active research projects and those animals should not be disturbed. We have placed yellow cones as reminders not to enter these areas, and we ask that you please honor this limitation.

2. The MBL Communications Office runs daily tours in the summer and these include the Marine Resources Center. This is a well organized and worthwhile experience and we encourage you to call the Communications Office (x7423) to participate in a tour, or to schedule one for your group.

3. If you are interested in seeing more details of the MRD seawater systems, or knowing more about the aquatic research projects, please contact Dave Remsen, Manager of the MRD, at x7477.
