Gallery - BaitHouse

All of these images have been taken at the Island Bay Marine Education center, located in the old bait house right at the end of the Island Bar Parade. It is mildly ironic that a building which was used to store the live bait for catching fish is now dedicated to preserving fish life and letting the public appreciate more the wildlife they have living near them just offshore. This is run by an enthusiastic staff of mostly volunteers who are very passionate about the fish they are taking care of. They were infectiously keen to tell you about the lifecycle of any fish and discuss the unique characteristics they all have.
