Pennie the Penguin says "HELLO in there..."

We had the opportunity to attend Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute's first annual WSB Tourney today. What a great place. 30-50# Yellow Tail right in our backyard, it looked like a huge above ground swimming pool with brood stock swimming in circles. Did you know Yellow Tail yawn... Yeh, me either. The tank was 15' deep, with one viewing window. The camera didn't take to well to the plexi glass. They don't get many visitors so one scratched up viewing hole is all they had.

Halibut tanks with larvae all the way up to fingerlings all in one facility. What a great behind the scenes peek.

I'm kinda embarrased about these picks. I didn't double check the setting on the camera. The penguin would a looked hot at the Perris Auto Speedway. Notice the blue ting... Dooh I'm stupid...
