Discovery Lab on Predatory Fishes at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS)

Families are invited to learn about predatory fishes found in the Chesapeake Bay during the February 20th Discovery Lab at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS). Through exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities, participants will explore how predatory fishes have evolved to become such excellent hunters. VIMS graduate student Dan Crear will also provide participants with a short presentation on his research on two of the Bay's top predators - cobia and sandbar sharks.

This free program, designed with elementary-aged youth and their parents in mind, is provided every month by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (CBNERR) at VIMS. All Discovery Labs take place from 6:00-8:00 pm (presentation at 6:30 pm) on the VIMS campus in Gloucester Point. Registration is required due to limited space. Visit or call 804-684-7061 to register or to find out more information on this and other Discovery Labs.
