At Phillips Wharf education is our top priority and not only would we love to host you at our waterfront center on Tilghman Island, but we can also come to you in the Fishmobile, our traveling marine science program.
The Fishmobile travels to schools, summer camps, community events and even birthday parties.
The Fishmobile is a mobile aquarium which travels throughout the state of Maryland, as well as nearby regions in Virginia and Delaware. On-board are 13 tanks and 2 touch tanks in which you can find animals native to the Chesapeake Bay. Common animals you may meet on the Fishmobile include:
• Horseshoe crab
• Northern Pufferfish
• Lined Seahorse
• American Eel
• Snapping Turtle
• Blue crab
• An oyster reef tank with blennies, gobies, toadfish, and grass shrimp
• Spider crab
TEACHERS – The Fishmobile is the perfect field trip because we come to you! An educational program can be customized based on what Chesapeake Bay topics your class is focusing on. Popular programs include watershed pollution, blue crab ecology, and oyster reefs. Speak with our Education Director to discuss options.
