Mystic Aquarium broke ground earlier this week on Phase I of a construction project that will culminate in the new state of the art Ocean Conservation and Research Center which aims to expand the Aquarium's scientific focus on aquatic animal health and behavior. 

The Ocean Conservation and Research Center project has two main components, renovation of the existing aquatic animal study center and construction of a new building that will physically attach to the Aquatic Animal Study Center. 

The result of the construction will be an almost 9,000 square foot facility that will house Mystic Aquarium's animal care, water quality and research operations, all of which are important to promoting optimal marine animal care and health practices in both aquarium and zoo settings and in natural habitats. 

The new center will be an important part as Mystic Aquarium strengthens its mission programs of conservation, education, exhibits and research, under an interdisciplinary and highly collaborative model entitled "One Ocean, One Mission."
