A box contained "Live Plankton Collected Today." A magnifying lens and light projected the plankton on the wall next to the exhibit. The sign read:

Live Plankton Collected Today
Plankton are drifting organisms ranging in size from microscopic larvae to large sea jellies and form the base of most marine food webs. The live plankton you see were collected just outside the Aquarium. Larval worms, mollusks, and crustaceans are abundant in this sample as are copepods, crustaceans featured in the Vertical Migration video and signage.

A video of undersea creatures was between two quotations. On the left was:

"We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started . . . and will know the place for the first time."

T.S. Eliot

On the right was another quotation:

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path . . . and leave a trail."

Ralph Waldo Emerson
