Georgia Aquarium and the Steinhart Aquarium at the California Academy of Sciences have something in common: operating two of the largest living reef aquariums in the world. This is a tremendous technical challenge, so staff from the two aquariums are collaborating to better understand how to build and maintain thriving live reef exhibits on such a large scale.
“Mega-Reef Exhibit” Monitoring and Evaluation Program
Very large living reef aquariums, like our Indo-Pacific reef exhibit, can be extremely challenging to manage. This project connected the two largest such exhibits in the world, here and the Steinhart Aquarium in California, in a collaborative attempt to better understand how to build and maintain thriving live reef exhibits on such a large scale.
