Aquarium Curator & Manager Ricky Belanger was recently interviewed by Cortes Currents reporter Roy Hales about the Discovery Passage Aquarium goals, history, and future initiatives. The aquarium has been open for a decade now, at the base of the Discovery Pier in Campbell River, and has warmly welcomed and educated thousands of visitors from around the world.

Ricky talks about the many unique animals we display at the aquarium, as well as the ecological benefits of a catch and release aquarium. The article displays photos of a few notable animals found in the aquarium, along with action shots of Ricky collecting this year's Giant Pacific Octopus from the water.
