The aquarium will look over the marina for a first hand look at the marinas which are home to Oregon’s largest commercial and recreational fishing fleets. The University of Oregon is currently assisting to complete the new project and taking donations to finish. They are looking to raise $30,000.00 to be able to complete the aquarium and museum in the next few months.
