We have currently moved the position of our newest camera to show the entirety of our Fish Room instead of our “hosting” clownfish. You can now see different T4O members at work in the Fish Room! Be sure to tune in at 10:30am to 11:00am each Thursday to view the origional Teens for Oceans Club meet and take care of the fish tanks every week! We are unable to give any other specific times as to when students will be in the room at this time but we hope to have a more complete schedule for you soon!
* We are not sure if this will be a permanent switch, however we are going to try it out for a while. There will not be a club meeting this Thursday, 10/15, because we don’t have school, but check next week for the first meeting!

Hello fish enthusiasts! We are pleased to announce that we have set up yet another webcam! This latest camera gives you a crystal clear view of one of the tanks in our Teens 4 Oceans “Fish Room”, as named by the students who take care of the tanks inside. You can watch some beautiful clownfish “hosting” on a Stychodactyla gigantea anemone. The link to reach this camera can be found just below the one for the Bahia Honda cameras on the T4O website or off the webcam page. The lights are on from approximately 9pm – 11pm EST.
We are making plans to set up more “Fish Room” cameras in the future, but for now enjoy! If you have trouble with the link, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you to the many people who have sent us images for our new fish ID system. Aren’t these spadefish just characters?
We would like some feedback on where to point the camera. At this time we are looking directly out from the concrete support of the bridge into the channel between north and southbound lanes of the highway. We have had the camera swing the right and look up at the northbound support of our column, where Goliaths seem to like to congregate and swim in large circles. Any suggestions would be appreciated. We need more images of fish species such as Sheepshead, other goliath species, Lookdowns, angels, sharks, Tarpon, snapper species, grunts, other jacks (such as horse-eye), etc.
Thanks for now!

Sadly, a transmitter has failed at the remote side of our Bahia Honda Cam System. We will try to raise funds to replace the unit and get the cam running as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience! We may put up a short video from the week of 8-5-09 to remind you of our fish friends!

Welcome back fish lovers. We are so excited to have our system at the Dry Tortugas National Park working, despite the dredging operations that surprised all of us a wee bit. They should be done in a few weeks and then we will have some incredible views from the Fort. Bahia Honda has been looking good in the last few days and we are hoping for images that YOU snap from your computer. We would like to use our own images to build a database of information with fish identification and other information about the faunal inhabitants at our two camera sites.
We have two more camera systems that we hope to install in the next few months, and we need to raise some funds for equipment and installation. Please buy a t-shirt or post ideas for fundraising here on the blog.
