How do ocean animals smell? Pretty great, actually! Aquarist Crystal explains how lobsters, fish and other ocean animals use their sense of smell to help them detect prey in their watery world.

This is the first episode of Marine Senses Mondays—a new series of videos from California Science Center aquarists and divers. For this video, Aquarist Albert provided the lobster footage, Assistant Dive Safety Officer (ADSO) Sean filmed the fish, and Aquarist Natalie took the photos. Check back on the first Monday in June for our next episode, Taste!
