If you ever visit the kelp tank at the Science Center, you might notice that we have a complete ecosystem on display, including both predators and prey. So, naturally, people often ask our staff if the fish eat each other.
Ever wonder if our kelp tank fish eat… other fish?
It is a rare event. But to answer this question, we’re digging into our archives to bring you an unaired clip from our past interview with Erin Shusterman, the interim director of husbandry here at the Science Center. She leads the team of keepers and aquarists that takes care of all our animals. In this clip, Erin breaks down how her team carefully feeds the animals in the kelp tank to keep everything in balance.
