Fish Form and Function
The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Lisa Kovalanchik on May 24 at 2 pm as she discusses fish form and function and what makes fish so beautifully adapted to the watery world in which they live. You will learn the basics of fish , what distinguishes them from other vertebrate groups and dive into the external and internal anatomy of these finned creatures. Full of fascinating adaptations and intriguing behaviors, fish are important members of ecosystems around the world, especially here in the lowcountry marshes and rivers. We will discuss how the lunate tail of a tuna makes them masters of speed and how the camouflage of a flounder allows them to fade into the background.
Lisa is the assistant aquarium curator of the UGA Aquarium in Savannah.
