MarineQuest 2024: Celebrating science for 29 years! 

The Fish and Wildlife Research Institute proudly welcomes the public to MarineQuest, an annual open
house celebrating Florida’s diverse wildlife, ecosystems and cutting-edge research. Now in its 29th year,
MarineQuest offers a unique opportunity for thousands of visitors to explore Florida’s fish and wildlife.

MarineQuest will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10 and will be hosted at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in downtown St.
Petersburg at 100 8th Avenue SE. MarineQuest is held in conjunction with the St. Petersburg Science Festival.

From touch tanks featuring live marine critters to interactive activities for kids, MarineQuest promises a day
filled with excitement and education. Attendees can engage with top researchers from Florida and delve into
the world of sharks, rays, manatees, birds, coral, red tide and more. Live demonstrations and educational ex-
hibits will showcase FWRI’s commitment to protecting, conserving, and managing Florida’s invaluable fish
and wildlife resources.
