Here's another view of the fish sculpture in the courtyard area between the Duncan Law Seafood Consumer Center (shown here) and the Seafood Research and Education Center shown the other day in my May 10 post. In the past few days I've seen people entering both buildings, so I'm not certain what parts of the operations have been closed and what parts are still open. I believe that the seafood cooking classes have been closed. If anyone can give me some up-to-date-info, I'll amend the post.
Someone also asked how many fish were on the sculpture. As you can see, it's hard to get an angle showing everything. There are three halibut (flat) on the right-hand side. I think there are at least 11 fish, a crab pot, and a net, and at the far end is a stylized human. Leading up the steps to the Duncan Law entrance are three more salmon on the side of the staircase, not attached to this standing sculpture. You have to walk around it to see everything. I like the jagged-edged sturgeon near the bottom. We have a lot of these interesting fish in the river here.
Who is the sculptor? I didn't see a name. Vern Wilson is one of the local sculptors who makes fish in metal, but I don't know if he or someone else made this one. Can anyone tell me?
