Event Details

 

Stephen Palumbi, Director of Hopkins Marine Station, talks about his new book – The Extreme Life of the Sea.   What are the fastest fish in the sea? The deepest species? The hottest, coldest, oldest? The strangest family lives? The oceans are filled with a huge diversity of life, and species manage to live in virtually all habitats. There is the deepsea stop light fish with red search lights for finding prey – that only it can see. There are ice fish with special proteins that keep ice out of their blood, and are now used to keep ice out of your ice cream. This is a talk for everyone who wants to know the secrets of the sea. It is about the familiar – where Nemo finds a mate – and the unfamiliar – how do squid fly? It is about the extreme life of the sea.


This program is being held in collaboration with the San Francisco Chapter of the American Cetacean Society, and the Bio Blitz and Biodiversity Festival to be held March 28-29 by National Geographic, the National Park Service, the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and the Presidion Trust.

Organizer

Aquarium of the Bay

Aquarium of the Bay partners with The Bay Institute to protect, restore and inspire the conservation of San Francisco Bay and its watershed, from the Sierra to the sea.  

We focus on water, beginning at the heart—the very depths—of San Francisco Bay.  Our facility showcases 300 feet of crystal clear acrylic tunnels holding 700,000 gallons of carefully maintained Bay water that sustains approximately 20,000 animals, from octopuses to eight-foot native, sevengill sharks.  Visitors are also treated to mesmerizing walls of jellies and a chance to touch bat rays, skates and “splash zone" animals.
