For 10 years the Venice Oceanarium’s hosted its weekly pop-up marine biology lab at the end of the historic Venice fishing pier. Their goal is to build a permanent Venice Oceanarium Pavilion attraction incorporated sea life, history, art and culture. They’ve garnered enthusiastic support from visitors, LA City officials and the Venice community.
