Aquarium participates in World Ocean Day

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Wilmington area honors our beaches and waters every year on June 8, World Ocean Day.

Experts at Ft. Fisher Aquarium in Kure Beach talked about the effects of debris and plastic bags on ocean life as well as what types of fish, sharks, and rays can be harmed.

There was even a station where you could make your own "ocean day crown".
