Collecting critters

Fenn Holt, a marine biology teacher in Berlin, knows she won't be able to take her students on their typical Project Oceanology field trip because of COVID-19 precautions. So on Sunday she collected fish and other aquatic life to display in the five 30-gallon tanks she has in her classroom. 

"If we can't come here I'll bring it to them," she said of spending her weekend collecting marine life. 

Holt was joined by her daughter Schuyler, 12, as they looked for animals in the tide pools at UConn Avery Point's campus in Groton on Sunday, Feb. 28, 2021. They didn't find many of the crabs they were looking for but were gathering snails and other living organisms.
