Did you know the scientific name for blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, means “savory beautiful swimmer”? This delicious crustacean is one of the top fisheries in Georgia. Learn all about these amazing animals during a catch-and-release crabbing lesson on the dock behind the UGA Aquarium. Ages 5 and up, children must be accompanied by an adult.
*Crab traps and bait will be provided.
Every Tuesday in June and July visitors can explore coastal habitats and learn about native wildlife during hands-on, feet-in field trips at the UGA Marine Education Center and Aquarium on Skidaway Island. For information about additional field trips being offered, click here.
