Check out the Reactive Fish Sculpture at the Lighthouse!
The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Reactive Fish Sculpture translates water sensor measurements to colors and motion. The fish sculpture reflects the salinity, algae, dissolved oxygen, and turbidity of the water at both the Lake Pontchartrain and Mississippi River. Visit The New Canal Lighthouse to view it in action and learn more below! Stay tuned to help us name this awesome fish!
