This is what it looks like when you swim with sharks in the Giant Ocean Tank. Follow the link to watch a video of these beautiful, sleek swimmers patrolling the reef! http://divers.neaq.org/2014/08/shaaaaaarks.html

Visitor Picture: African Penguin
Visitors to the Aquarium snap some amazing pictures, and sometimes we just have to share them. This picture of an African penguin (Spheniscus demersus) really shows off their countershading colors—white on the tummy and black on the back.

This fancy camouflage helps penguins blend while swimming. Just imagine you're in the water with them. Countershading works from above by blending the penguin's black back into the dark ocean bottom and from below by blending the white belly into the bright surface of the water.

So it's not a tuxedo after all. Come see the penguins' dapper camouflage at the Aquarium! http://goo.gl/Vi128z

It turned out to be a beautiful day for the Newburyport Yankee Homecoming parade! It was great to see everyone who came out. Thank you so much for all the support along the parade route.

See the sea turtles
There are three species of sea turtles in the Giant Ocean Tank: loggerhead (Caretta caretta), green (Chelonia mydas) and Kemp's ridley (Lepidochelys kempii). They all have favorite resting spots and eating stations and names—like Myrtle. She's the uniquely-named (wink) 550-lb green sea turtle. Come get to  know them all!

HERE'S WHERE TO START PLANNING A VISIT: http://goo.gl/Cjw9Ip

SCIENCE!
 
The first man-made, biologically functional leaf has been created. It takes in carbon dioxide, water, and light and releases oxygen. That's good news for space travelers: http://cnet.co/1lSFUQB
