While visiting Petty Harbour, be sure to check out the Mini Aquarium. The mini aquarium operates on a catch and release policy. During the fishing season, fishermen provide the aquarium with creatures which, at the end of the season, are returned to the sea. The aquarium has knowledgeable staff on hand to answer any questions you may have about the diverse collection of aquatic life.
