When they feed the fish at the country's oldest public aquarium, they don’t just throw them bait.

The Northeast Fisheries Science Center Woods Hole Science Aquarium in Massachusetts was established in 1885 and displays approximately 140 species of marine animals found in Northeast and Mid-Atlantic U.S. waters.

Preparing food for the animals is an interesting, gooey and enlightening process. This highly entertaining and informative video explains the fascinating kitchen process (carrots are on the menu) and shows how the various fish attack their meals.

You can see the video at the NEFSC website.
