What's new at the Monterey Bay Aquarium?

The Monterey Bay Aquarium has some new things this fall. If you haven't been in awhile, now may be the time to plan a day trip!  This summer they reopened the Outer Bay galleries as the Open Sea, a million gallon tank. It focuses on the migrations of ocean animals across the Pacific and the constant motion of life in the open ocean. You'll see swirls of schooling fishes (sardines), jellies, predators such as sharks (hammerhead and sandbar) and tunas, barracuda, stingrays, ocean sunfish, sea turtles and seabirds share this wild territory. In one instant the water appears empty; in another, it teems with life.

The aquarium's pioneering white shark research project resumes this year, and a young great white shark  is currently on exhibit.
