2020 Great Annual Fish Count

The Board of the New England Aquarium Dive Club has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Great Annual Fish Count Event originally scheduled for Saturday, July 25, 2020 in order to keep all of our participants safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Save the Date for the 2021 Great Annual Fish Count to be held on Saturday, July 24, 2021 at Stage Fort Park, Gloucester, MA.

Thank you to all of our participants and sponsors for your ongoing support. We look forward to seeing you at our event in 2021!

New England Species ID

While we are all waiting to get back in the water, have a look at SECONN Divers New England Fish ID page. It's got some great pictures, and will help you learn what you're seeing underwater!

Don't Let Your Membership Lapse

Even while they are closed, the New England Aquarium is still caring for animals and maintaining the facilities and exhibits. They are also keeping a skeleton crew at work, and running virtual programs.

With no income from visitors, it's more important than ever to maintain your membership so they can continue to keep up with these expenses.

Your dive club membership ($15 add on to the Aquarium membership) allows us to have speakers every month throughout the year (which we will continue to do online).

The Aquarium launched an online advocacy tool as a way that people can show their support for the Aquarium. The tool helps visitors submit a letter to their elected officials asking Congress to support emergency relief funding for non-profit aquariums, zoos, and museums across the country. It takes less than 30 seconds and costs nothing to participate.

Support Your Local Dive Shop!

The local dive shops across New England continue to need your business! Many are remaining open by appointment, and still offering classes virtually or equipment servicing. Watch this space for a list of dive shops that are staying open, and what services they offer.

Bay State Council of Divers Treasure Hunt (09/20)

The annual Bay State Council of Divers (BSC) Underwater Treasure Hunt competition is our major fundraiser. It is an enjoyable family event providing an opportunity to meet new dive buddies, compete in a friendly environment and win prizes while supporting the Bay State Council of Divers. Although traditionally scheduled as an early-season event, this year we moved it into September, prime time for diving, to give us better weather and water conditions. It was a great time for the whole family
