Cet-Mar Aquarium

“Did you know that there is an aquarium in Rocky Point? Not a lot of people do. It is called Cet Mar, and its main focus is on the wildlife and eco systems of the sea of Cortez. They’ve got remakes of the reef ecosystems found in the Sea of Cortez along with turtles, sea lions, and of course the Sea of Cortez’s pride: shrimp. Who knew there were so many different kinds?! You can buy a bag of food and feed the turtles and sea lions!

You can feed the turtles!

It is fun for everyone!

Cet Mar is an open tank aquarium, housing wild animals; thus they do get to be released, so be aware that the exhibits change. Cet Mar is dedicated to providing awareness and knowledge of the Sea of Cortez and its inhabitants, not to exploit them. Their hours of operation are from 10am-3pm during the week and from 10am-6pm on the weekends. Entry is about $50 pesos ($4 more or less) and is located on the road to Las Conchas. You should definitely visit Cet Mar Aquarium next time you are in Rocky Point!”

Monterey Bay Aquarium

The Monterey Bay Aquarium, on the Californian coast is unique, beautiful, and stunning to say the least. The aquarium itself is one of a kind. The aquarium is right of the coast, meaning that the floor-to-ceiling windows show viewers the open ocean. The water isn’t aquarium-fish-tank water that the marine animals have to acclimate to. Every night, the water is transferred in directly from the ocean, and gently filtered so that viewers are able to see nature how it should be.

The exhibits at the museum are almost as beautiful as the ocean itself. With seasonal exhibits like the jellyfish, and new ones opening year-round, there is always something new and crazy and exciting to see!

One of the main focuses of the aquarium is the issue of conservation. The aquarium is dedicated to helping protect and save native ocean species that are quickly deteriorating. Here is the aquarium’s ocean conservation page, where you can find out more about the species and issues that are current in the region, and possibly make a donation to keep the aquarium’s impact on the environment strong.

Seafood Watch 2012

Here it is! The new and improved Seafood Watch list courtesy of Monterey Bay Aquarium!

These guides are incredibly useful and show consumers what is healthy and sustainable to eat, and what to avoid due to overharvesting and possible extinction.

We have the PDF here, and will be putting up a permanent page with these pocket-sized, convenient brochures.
