Next time you are in Long Beach, California, pay a visit to the Aquarium of the Pacific, devoted solely to the Pacific Ocean and its diverse sealife. When you enter the lobby, you will find a life-size model of a blue whale. Then, you will find more than 12-thousand fish and mammals representing three regions of the Pacific.
A big draw is the predator tank: it is about thirty feet deep and holds 140-thousand gallons of water. There are 50 species and 150 animals in this tank, including sharks.
