Marine campers observe sea creatures caught in a seine net during Tampa Bay Watch's Sea Monkeys summer camp Tuesday in Tierra Verde. Kids got a chance to study pinfish, snails, hermit crabs and shrimp in a wet lab. Tampa Bay Watch's marine summer camps for kids up to age 14 run through Aug. 8 and include scavenger hunts, trawling, kayaking, salt marsh planting and a recycling regatta. The camp "shows them behind the scenes of marine biology and helps educate them about Tampa Bay," educator Dylan Essi said. For more information, go to tampabaywatch.org.
