by  Mote Marine Laboratory

Program image

[STUDIO] You are never far from a fish. They live in the highest mountain streams and the deepest ocean depths. Flip through fish history to find out how their ancestors rose up over eons to emerge as the most diverse group of vertebrates on earth. And learn how our nursery research sends hatchlings on a vital journey that may one day shape the future of fish everywhere.
