Animal Release Party - October 19, 2013
Being one of few aquariums in Canada that are permitted by DFO to release our animals back to the ocean, we make it into a party! Over 200 people came on a wet, cold day to gently put the animals right back where our volunteer and staff SCUBA divers collected them at the beginning of the season.
Grand Opening - June 15, 2013
The BIG day was pretty monumental. 1000 people passed through the doors of the Mini Aquarium that day, shoulder to shoulder. Keith Hutchings, the Minister of Innovation, Business and Rural Development as well as Ron Doyle, Mayor of Petty Harbour-Maddox Cove and Tom Best, President of the Fisherman's Cooperative formally welcomed us to town.
