Welcome to Mr. and Mrs. Fish!

The world’s finest performing arts marine education program.

The world’s finest performing arts marine education program, was the husband wife team of Jeff & Deb Sandler, better known as Mr. and Mrs. Fish.

Geared to elementary aged children and their families, Mr. and Mrs. Fish are global ambassadors for ocean learning having performed in 20 countries & 30 U.S. States over the past four decades.

Based at Southern Maine Community College in South Portland, Maine, Mr. and Mrs. Fish were extremely dynamic educators who taught marine science by costuming themselves as humorous sea creatures and acting out life as it is in the sea.

Their creative dramatic shows in schools and communities had audiences roaring with laughter, all while gaining a wealth of solid ocean learning.

In the summer, Mr. and Mrs. Fish put forth a wonderful featured educational ocean experience known affectionately as Fish Camp. Geared to children ages 7 through 12 Fish Camp featured ocean learning done with fun, laughter and building self-esteem.

Sadly, after four decades Fish Camp has ended, but will never be forgotten.

Mr. and Mrs. Fish have now fully retired and are no longer doing educational programs.

We have left the web site up for people to recall fond memories of attending Fish Camp or seeing Mr. and Mrs. Fish at their school.

The Briny Podcast

Jeff and Deb Sandler (a.k.a. Mr. and Mrs. Fish) couldn’t stand each other when they met – they were rivals for the job of education director of Maine’s Portland Aquarium. Four decades later, they’ve traveled all over the world getting kids excited about marine biology with a mix of theater, slapstick comedy, and songs. Along the way, they fell in love. Now they’ve reached the last week of Fish Camp, and they’re getting ready to hang up their flippers.
