Meet the scientists and crew of the Bell M. Shimada when this National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries Research Vessel returns to Pier 15. Get a firsthand account of life on a state-of-the-art research vessel and visit the Bay Observatory Gallery to explore the exciting history of sunken ships beneath the now-buried SF waterfront. You'll also learn about the different species inhabiting the pilings beneath the pier as well as about the climate and ocean science behind many of our new exhibits, including the Wired Pier project.
