This workshop is designed to give educators an inside look at the nutrition and feeding practices for our aquarium animals as well as demonstrate their effect on animal health. Participants will work closely with aquarium staff to perform hands-on preparation of fish samples for content analysis and to calculate total caloric content of the food item, based on their results.
