Tropical fish rescue at Ft. Wetherill Saturday

Head out to Ft. Wetherill this Saturday, Sept. 26, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for the New England Aquarium Dive Club’s annual tropical fish rescue.

Club members will be seining – pulling a fish net through shallow water up onto the beach, where children can help gather the fish collected in the net. A large touch tank including lobsters, crabs, starfish, etc. will be set up for all to enjoy. Experts will be on hand to teach kids about tropical fish, which can be observed in the on-site holding aquariums.

The event will also include volleyball, music, raffles and a barbecue. All proceeds will benefit the Cotting School.
