More pictures of sardines! I really had no idea that the sardine industry was so big here until we came to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Apparently after World War II, the sardine population in Monterey Bay collapsed from overfishing. They then had to convert the old canning factories and fisherman’s wharf to a tourist area like it is today.
After the Jellies Experience we headed downstairs and waited for the Kelp Forest feeding demonstration. A volunteer diver fed the fish and explained the ecosystem found in and around kelp forests. She even answered questions from the audience. She sounded like Darth Vadar… it was fun.
