Grand Release Party, October 17.

Join us Saturday, October 17th, at 10:00am for our traditional end-of-season closing party. Each visitor will have a chance to free a display animal from its temporary residence in the aquarium to the waters of Ucluelet Harbour. New display specimens will be collected in the spring in time for the aquarium's re-opening next March.

Here is your chance to participate in this FREE one-of-a-kind experience unique to the Ucluelet Aquarium. Bring the whole family and remember to dress for the weather!

Don't forget to bring your own reusable mug for some yummy hot chocolate and your spare change to donate!

See you there!

Hello! I manage a retail store for an oyster farm on the Olympic Peninsula (you can check out our own sea creature blog here www.hamahamaoysters.com/blog). I've enjoyed reading your blog and have learned lots of interesting tidbits. We have a salt water aquarium in our retail store and I would love to keep a lewis' moon snail in it. Would you be able to answer some moon snail husbandry questions? Like, what temperatures can they tolerate? What temperature do they prefer? How often do they need to be fed?

Thanks!
