Our Community Sponsors and Partners

Taking marine science education and making it a fun, personal experience for kids and adults only can happen with the help and support of our friends and partners in the world and marine sciencencommunity.

They give us time, resources and money. Thanks to them, The Pier Aquarium can create new exciting award-winning exhibits featuring current research, innovative educational programs that add the word “play” to our “FISH-ful Saturday” family events and community outreach activities.

We also can add to and enhance the environment of our diverse aquatic “residents.” They teach and entertain us in our own “Fresh Fish Theater.” Thank you, sponsors and partners. Take a big bow!
