Sea Center Texas


Sea Center Texas is a very popular attraction for families of all ages. A joint effort by Dow Chemical, the Gulf Coast Conservation Association, and Texas Parks and Wildlife, created the Sea Center Texas. Located in nearby Lake Jackson, the 11 million-dollar saltwater fish hatchery showcases a 22,000 square foot hatchery building that houses redfish and speckled trout brood fish, producing over 20 million fingerlings a year. The hatchery includes “touch tanks” for children as well as three aquariums. A 2,000-gallon tidal grass aquarium features fish found in Texas bays, rivers, and lakes. The 5,000-gallon surf aquarium features fish caught of Texas beaches and jetties. Finally, the 52,000-gallon offshore aquarium houses fish found in the Gulf. All aquariums represent the species as they would live in their natural habitat. There is a 5-acre freshwater wetland site designed to help visitors understand the importance of our vital wetlands. A nature walk around the wetlands offers the chance to view birds and other wildlife. Sea Center Texas does offer guided tours of the facility but you must call in advance to schedule. Otherwise, you can go anytime during business hours for a self-guided tour and admission is always free.
