  • Description

    Full titles read: "Sea Denizens - Filmed at Brighton Aquarium. Described by the Curator, G.W. Weller, F.Z.S." (new title) "Some of the queerest creatures in the world live below water, and many of the plainest looking fish acquire new beauty when seen in liquid surroundings."

    Brighton, East Sussex.

    Brief shot of a band playing on a sea front bandstand. Several people sit in canopied deck chairs and listen - they are wearing hats and coats and it looks quite cold!

    Various shots show us exhibits in the Brighton Aquarium. Sea anemones, ray fish, sticklebacks, herring, silver whiting and crawfish, pike and perch are seen in different tanks and we hear information about them and the aquarium from the curator, GW Weller (off-camera). Sea lions are fed; we see them diving in their tank for fish (looks very cramped to me).
