Great White Shark Now on Exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium!

Check out the new Great White Shark now on exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

“The young shark, a four-foot, seven-inch male weighing 43  pounds, was collected by their husbandry staff on August 18 near Marina del Rey, California. Since then, the shark has  been in an ocean holding pen while they confirmed that he  was feeding consistently and swimming comfortably in the  enclosure. On August 31 they brought him to the Aquarium  and placed him in the million-gallon Open Sea exhibit. They hope he’ll remain on exhibit for several months helping to change public attitudes and promote protection for this  magnificent and much-maligned ocean predator.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is in their 10th season of white shark field research and are learning things that will help protect these remarkable animals for future generations.”
