Animal Spotlight: Beluga whales 
Belugas winter feed
Mystic Aquarium's Arctic Coast exhibit is one of the largest outdoor beluga whale exhibits in North America! Contoured to mimic the beluga's natural habitat in the arctic and sub-arctic, the water temperature is maintained at approximately 55 degrees in the summer and cooled naturally during the winter.

Belugas are covered in blubber which helps keep them warm in their cold habitat. During the winter months, their daily fish intake increases to help maintain that thick blubber layer. Our whales can eat anywhere between 50 - 80 pounds of restaurant-quality herring, capelin, mackerel, squid and sardine per day.

You Can Help

Take advantage of heat from the sun! Open curtains on your south-facing windows during the day so the sunlight can naturally heat your home. Then close them at night to reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows. Also consider investing in thermal curtains which will help with heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
