Public Aquariums

Public Aquariums

The Online Resource to Public Aquariums of North America
Public aquariums bring the underwater world up close and personal to thousands, if not millions, of people every year. Most people do not have the opportunity to dive deep and explore the world of fish, sharks and stingrays in the oceans, lakes and rivers of the world, so public aquariums allow old and young alike to explore and see these fascinating creatures up close and personal. This experience helps us appreciate the world under the water, and in turn hopefully we can all work to preserve and care for the earth and the creatures both above and below the water!
