Clinging to a shark egg casing, this delicate brittle star waves one arm gently through the water collecting plankton.

Octopus eggs update: 64 days into their development and their chromatophores (color changing cells) have begun to show! Chromatophores are very important to a new octopus, they enable them to camouflage and avoid predation.😊

Damian's blubber layer keeps him so warm, that when out of water, he steams! His excuse for this excess blubber? He's getting ready for winter.😂

Here is a quick video from today of the shearwaters and the humpbacks. https://youtu.be/3MWnkmq0V7E

What an amazing day in Seaside!! A big bait ball moved into the cove this morning. With it followed humpback whales, harbor porpoises, harbor seals, California sea lions, pelican, terns, thousands of shearwaters, and there were even rumors of a few minke whales. If the bait fish stay near shore the whales may be around for a few days. The best times to see these giants from shore is at high tide.

Three years ago we rescued an olive ridley sea turtle off of the Long Beach peninsula, she along with two others were released back into the ocean yesterday! We are so excited and happy for them. A big thank you to everyone involved.

We have eyes! 48 days into their development and their eyes (the small red dots) are visible! Soon their color changing cells will form and the octopus eggs will start to pulsate with colors. We are probably a month out from hatching. Mom is taking good care of them and is still willing to take a small piece of salmon here and there to munch on.

As the smoke from the wildfires wafted in yesterday, it turned the beach an eerie yellow with sparkling red waves. 😮

These small birds are proof that the Oregon Coast is a special place. Every year hundreds/thousands of sea birds come to the off-shore rocks and beaches of Oregon to nest and raise their young. For most people this is the only time of year to see these magnificent birds, but even then, some are nocturnal and are hardly ever seen. This rhinoceros auklet fledgling came to the Aquarium this afternoon in need of some TLC. These fledglings usually leave the nest for the open ocean at night and are rarely seen. This little guy was found struggling on the beach near Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach. Thankfully some very thoughtful visitors called the Wildlife Center of the North Coast and they asked them to pick the fledgling up and bring it the the Seaside Aquarium. We were able to transfer the little auklet to the Center and after some rest, hydration, and food this little guy should be back on its merry way! A huge thank you to the staff and volunteers at the Wildlife Center of the North Coast for all that they do for our local wildlife!

The Seaside Aquarium will be closed tomorrow for an employee appreciation and staff training session before our staff has to return to high school and college. Thank you for your understanding. We will re-open Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m.

A view of the eclipse from the Seaside Aquarium! The weather actually cooperated, the fog rolled back in as the moon covered the sun and the temperature dropped but the eclipse was still visible!
