Marine Biology Boat Trip—Go Hands-On Trawling with the Experts

June 1 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Marine life viewed from the shore is very different from that seen in the deep waters of Shinnecock Bay. On this adventure, you’ll participate in the variety of activities performed by marine biologists as you trawl the waters of the bay to learn about its biology and ecology. You’ll help bring in, then study, finfish, invertebrates, and plankton. You’ll do benthic grabs to examine the sandy or muddy bay bottom—all this and much more, aboard Stony Brook University’s 45-ft. research vessel, RV Peconic. Children under 12 must have their own life jackets.

Program Leaders: Naturalists and Marine Biologists, SOFO and Southampton Campus, Stony Brook University

This program is for adults, teens, and children ages 8+.

For members, there is a $35 fee per person, and for non-members, there is a $45 fee. This program fee will also provide non-members with free admission to the museum on a day of their choice. Advanced reservations are required for all events.
