Have the Chesapeake Bay come to you through our traveling aquarium, The Fishmobile!

The Fishmobile is equipped with 13 live animal tanks and 2 interactive display tanks all of which feature animals that live in and around the Chesapeake Bay. There are also educational displays that highlight topics such as the history of our region and how our daily activities affect the animals that call the Chesapeake home.


The Fishmobile is available for school visits and events from April through November. This program combines STEM education with hands-on learning experiences that will help your students or guests better understand the Chesapeake Bay’s creatures and science.

A variety of tanks showcase animals that live in different habitats around the Chesapeake, including oyster reefs and marshes.

Other animals onboard the Fishmobile can include blue crabs, painted turtles, oyster toadfish, American eels, seahorses, flounder, and more!
