Long Island Sound: Marine Biologists at Work!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A beautiful September day at Hammonasset State Park to seine for life in Long Island Sound!

Glastonbury E. Hartford Magnet School fifth grade marine biologists worked to answer questions they have about life living along our Connecticut coastline. A big thank you to all of our teachers and adult volunteers who helped make this investigation possible!

Some of the animals studied: Blue fish, Pipefish, a Lizard fish, Black Fish, Silversides, Northern King Fish, Hermit Crabs and even a Sea Robin!

Danielle and Caeley added, “We caught the largest Lady Crab ever in the seine net!”  “It’s a male, said one student!”
