New England Aquarium Opens New Ocean Life Center in Boston

BOSTON - The New England Aquarium in Boston is opening a new ocean life center that it says will focus on fisheries conservation and the health of ecosystems and marine mammals.

The Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life is launching on Wednesday.

The aquarium says the facility will also focus on aquaculture, habitat conservation and the health of other marine animals.

The center is named for lead donors Linda Cabot and Ed Anderson of Westwood, Massachusetts. Cabot and Anderson are sailors and founders of North Bridge Venture Partners.

John Mandelman has been named vice president of the center. He is a longtime researcher of marine species including sharks and cod.
