This is a pool designed to accommodate cetaceans, e. g. harbour porpoise. It is also used as the largest pre-release pool. Those who have made it this far will soon be released. They have already demonstrated that they can eat fish on their own and compete with others. Now they only need to gain a little bit of weight.
Jet has left quarantine and was paired with Mint Chip when we checked in on him!
