Fish Discovery Weekend

Saturday Dec 8 10:00 AM-5:00 PM

See bizarre catfishes and other species of fish with every kind of whisker and learn how they use them not just for style, but for survival.
Join us for Fish Discovery Weekend to see rare and bizarre fish displays, meet fish scientists, and enjoy hands-on fun. Ichthyology Collection Manager Dr. Mark Sabaj Pérez will share stories about his field research in the Amazon, Mongolia, and closer to home. Meet more Academy ichthyologists and ask them about our fish collection representing more than 10,000 species from around the world. Children can make a fish hat and play an adaptation game. Free with museum admission.
