Aquarium of the Bay invites San Francisco Bay Area residents and visitors from around the world to get up close and personal with more than 20,000 local marine animals.
Aquarium of the Bay is a nonprofit marine
nature center that creates experiences that inspire conservation of the
San Francisco Bay and its watershed. The 65,000 square foot facility
features 300 feet of crystal clear acrylic tunnels holding over 700,000
gallons of filtered Bay water that is home to over 20,000 aquatic
animals, including sharks, bat rays and skates. New exhibits installed
in April 2009 include an octopus exhibit, a jellies exhibit and PG&E
Bay Lab, an interactive climate change exhibit.
