Unlike the marine research facility on the West Coast Road, I've seen busloads of school children many times disappearing into the Naturaliste Marine Discovery Centre at Hillarys Boat Harbour but it was only on Monday that I decided to have a peek for myself. The centre incorporates an interactive exhibition area and viewing areas into research facilities. One of the key activities undertaken at these 'state of the art' laboratories is the annual stock assessment of WA's most important fisheries, through surveys, sampling and analysis of trends in catch and fishing activity. It's good to know that such a close watch is being kept on securing the safety of the marine life along our beautiful coast. Good Friday tomorrow, here's wishing you a very happy and safe Easter, take care.....p.s. that slippery little sucker stuck to the glass really creeped me out yeeeeps!
