Sanibel Sea School Summer Camp – Ages 6-13
Walking, Talking Fish – Sea Robin Week
There exists in the waters around Sanibel a very peculiar creature. Although it is a fish, it “walks” along the bottom, sensing mollusks, crustaceans, and worms. Their pectoral fins are fan-shaped and can be found in temperate seas worldwide in bright colors and ornate patterns. We are talking about sea robins, and if you haven’t heard of them, you’re in for a treat: they’re some of the noisiest fish in the sea! This week we will explore sea robins’ ability to growl, bark, grunt, and cluck. We’ll experiment with our ability to make noise, create instruments, and use seine nets to catch one of these noisy bottom-dwellers. Let’s grab our masks and snorkels, dip below the surface, and listen carefully – we might hear one bark… And get ready to be loud and proud this week because it’ll be the last surf race of the summer!
