This video contains six segments showing how aquarists with Oregon Sea Grant care for animals at the Hatfield Marine Science Center’s Visitor Center in Newport, Oregon. The video starts with a behind-the-scenes tour of the area where new and sick animals are quarantined and treated (0:52). Other segments explain how aquarists feed the animals (3:54), take care of the octopus on display (7:10), care for coral (9:27), propagate coral (11:39), and clean the tanks (13:16). 

Oregon Sea Grant operates the Visitor Center, which features interactive exhibits and attracts more than 150,000 visitors each year. It is home to Oregon Sea Grant's marine education program for K-12 students and teachers.
