This is a pre-release pool. Animals that have already demonstrated that they can eat fish on their own are placed in a larger pool where they can learn how to compete for fish and socialize with other harbour seals.
"Training" Pool Mermaid's Gloves has demonstrated that she is confident eating fish on her own. She has been moved to a small pool that fits up to 3 animals where she can learn how to compete for fish with other harbour seals. She will move to a larger pool once she is confident enough.
