Night at the Museum: Fishermen's Tales

Seacoast Science Center

570 Ocean Blvd,
Rye, NH 03870

Dive into learning during Night at the Museum, an after-hours STEM exploration series for families at Seacoast Science Center. This quarterly program features a range of environmental topics, and engages community partners and friends to collectively learn about important local and global ocean conservation issues and how we can help make a difference. 

In December, we are focusing on fish. Seafood is one of the most prized resources in the Gulf of Maine, and it plays a key part in our economy and cultural identity. Join Seacoast Science Center for an action-packed evening to find out what is changing above and below the water’s surface that is impacting local fish populations. 

  • Meet local fishermen and oyster farmers who are using sustainable practice
  • Get hands-on with gear and meet a research technician who designs fishing gear
  • Learn the “why and how” of choosing sustainably harvested fish with Best Aquaculture Practices
  • Get up close and personal with our live animal ocean ambassadors
  • Play exciting games that teach about fish, fishing, and the Gulf of Maine
  • Find out about UNH School of Marine Science’s work with baby lumpfish, one of the newest species on the sustainable fisheries stage
  • Get crafty and make a fish print to take home
  • Meet representatives from One Fish Foundation to explore local sustainable fisheries

Cost for SSC Members: $2.50 per person or $10 per family (up to 6). Cost for non-members: $5 per person or $20 per family (up to 6).
