Filming with NPR

Last week NPR's "Science Friday" visited City Aquarium to learn the science behind aquarium installations. The NPR (National Public Radio) filmmaker joined Justin Muir on a trip to New Jersey's Merit Imports, a fish wholesaler in Paramus, NJ. There, Justin explained what he looks for when selecting healthy fish -- telltale signs like a fish's desire to eat or the length of time it has been at the seller's facility.

Justin also pointed out the various tropical fish and invertebrates, explaining the far places they came from, like the Phillipines, and the environmentally-friendly methods fishermen use to capture them. Afterward, NPR returned to City Aquarium's studio to film an interview with Justin: how he got started in the business and how he ensures that his tanks are "green."

To get the full scoop, watch the video this Friday when it debuts on NPR's "Science Friday" website.

Here, courtesy of the architects that contracted City Aquarium, are some new shots of the aquarium at the NY Harbor School. The charter school on Governor's Island was built with the purpose of teaching students about marine life, aquaculture, and navigation, especially as they pertain to local waters.

The 4,500-gallon freshwater aquarium features an array of fish from the local Hudson River.
The rock work was fashioned out of resin, epoxy, and cement, and then planted. City Aquarium LLC was responsible for its entire construction, including the photo mural installation, lighting, and life support.
