Aquariums of the Atlantic

 

The Science Center’s new 3,000 square foot Aquariums of the Atlantic house some of Florida's most beautiful native fish such as Queen angels, sharks, eels, stingrays and seahorses as well as some fish that have invaded Florida's habitats. The new aquariums take visitors through artificial reefs, open ocean, and environments of the everglades. As you walk into the aquarium the largest exhibit is our Shipwreck Cove, a 3,500 gallon predator tank teeming with grunts, sharks, a giant spotted moray eel, white fin remoras, lobsters and fierce barracudas. All of these treasures are swimming in and out of an eerie Florida sunken shipwreck. Watch your loved ones as they stand in the center of our 6 ft coral reef tank and feel like you are swimming among the fish! These species of fish hail from the Red Sea, Hawaiian Islands, Indo- Pacific and Atlantic Ocean. Exhibits and tanks in the Aquariums of the Atlantic reinforce the importance of stewardship of these environments and the long-term effects humans have on the oceans and wildlife.
