Plankton Safari

Join the team at Maritime Gloucester for a Plankton Safari every Saturday and Sunday

Come to Maritime Gloucester and discover what lives near the bottom of the oceanic food chain using digital microscopes! Does the term plankton define a certain species? No! It is a term used to describe the enormous biomass of microscopic sea creatures ranging from nascent shrimp, fish and jelly fish to the tiny frye of lobster and squid. Explore the depths as we take samples directly from Gloucester Harbor to the lab where attendees will have hands-on experiences with the lifeforms that serve as a major source of food in the sea! For kids ages 5 and up.
