Hosted by Venice Oceanarium

Friday night, May 26th from 10:30 until it’s over – or we get asked to leave – officially the beach closes at midnight, but they usually look the other way.
Join us on the beach by the breakwater rocks straight down from the end of Windward Ave. in Venice.


So, “What is a Grunion?” you ask.
Well, A Grunion is a fish about the same size and shape as a large sardine. Grunion are found ONLY around Southern California. The amazing thing is that at various times during the Spring, the females LEAVE THE SEA and squiggle onto the beach, where they lay their eggs in the sand. They are followed by hundreds of lusty male fish, intent on fertilizing these eggs. The seashore is covered by hundreds of SEX CRAZED FISH. You are cordially invited to witness this extraordinary event with us!
