Zen Diving: Aquarium Divers Find a Niche

Record #:
In May 2000, the aquarium at Manteo on Roanoke Island opened after a $16-million expansion project. The largest tank in the facility holds 250,000 gallons of seawater. Knowing that the staff alone could not do all the daily tank cleaning, Pat Murphy and Maura Bourgeois recruited a team of volunteer divers. This group now handles about two-thirds of all tank maintenance.
