The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk opens its backstage spaces for a rare behind-the-scenes tour. Conducted before the Aquarium opens, from 8:15 to 10 a.m., the guided tour offers unique opportunities to see how the animal-husbandry staff meets the varying food and water needs of some 2,000 resident animals.


The tour includes stops at the Aquarium’s “fish kitchen,” where 18 tons of fish a year is prepared, and above the 110,000-gallon Open Ocean tank, where the dorsal fins of 8-foot sand tiger sharks cut through the water surface. Learn the delicate requirements of a jellyfish “nursery.”


Participants must be at least 10 years old; under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. 


The tour is limited to 25 people, so reservations are strongly recommended. Walk-up tickets will be sold, space permitting.


For reservations or more details, call (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206.
