Long Description:
This fishery is open 9:00 AM to 3:45 PM, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

This is a great place to take the kids to see and feed the fish. For 25 cents you can get a small handful of food to toss into the fish tanks.

There is a small visitors center that has some pictures of this facility, and others like it in Massachusetts. There is usually someone available if you have questions.

There are though no public bathrooms available, so plan ahead.
