Ocean Life from the View of a Microscope | James S.  

Ocean Life from the View of a Microscope

There is a lot going on in the ocean when you look beyond the waves and the whales (and other animals) in the ocean, microscopic life flourishes underneath the surface. Over the next few weeks, the Aquarium of the Pacific will be talking with researchers working on the NOAA ship, Ronald H. Brown. These scientists are participating in ongoing research to measure and monitor changes in the world oceans over time. Traveling from Durban, South Africa to Goa, India, they will be collecting samples of the water so that they can describe the ocean chemistry and biology that they are observing.

Basking Shark! | Retired | Julien  

What is a basking shark? It’s basically ones of the coolest kinds of sharks and we never really get to see them! We had one a few years ago appear during a whale watch, but this Easter, we got a another sharky surprise! Not only was the shark seen on one whale watch trip during Easter Sunday, but, two trips that day!

Dolphins, Dolphins, AND MORE DOLPHINS! | Retired | Kera  

Dolphins, Dolphins, AND MORE DOLPHINS!

The gray whales are pretty much done passing through, and the next true season for whales is in the summer from around June to September when the blues are here. So for now, we go in search of some VERY acrobatic animals…the dolphins! And there’s more than one type of dolphin that likes to put on a show!

The ABC’s of Filtration at the Aquarium | Retired | Staci  

The ABC’s of Filtration at the Aquarium

Whether you’re maintaining an exhibit that holds 200 gallons or 200,000 gallons, filtration is an integral part of any successful man-made marine habitat. Recently, I mentioned that the Aquarium filters approximately 1,000,000 gallons of salt water per hour to support over 12,000 marine residents. Why is filtration necessary? Fortunately, the Education Department provided me with a wealth of information on filtration practices in effect at the Aquarium of the Pacific that I would love to share with you!
