Fishes: A New Exhibition
June 29, 2012 - March 13, 2013
Fishes: Reopened June 2012. Explore the diversity of fishes from gars to groupers and stonefishes to seahorses. The exhibition redisplays some long-time visitor favorites including the hammerhead and mako sharks, the massive bluefin tuna, and the prickly porcupine fish, and adds many new specimens borrowed from the Ichthyology Collections of Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology. Fishes combines abundant real specimens with 3-D models, robotic fish, colorful graphic displays, and an interactive multimedia station profiling the research of Harvard's Lauder Laboratory.
