Georgia Aquarium cuts ribbon on ‘SHARKS!’

October 27, 2020

Years in the making, Georgia Aquarium’s long-awaited and newest gallery, ‘SHARKS! Predators of the Deep,’ is open to the public. Guests can finally see one of the largest shark exhibits anywhere in the world.

The Aquarium hosted a virtual ribbon-cutting ceremony presented by general contractors Brasfield & Gorrie on October 23, 2020, to commemorate the opening of the new exhibit.

Featuring many unique elements and state-of-the-art technology, guests are guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience with one of nature’s most formidable apex predators. Sharks are featured in the 20-foot-deep, 185-foot-long exhibit and can be spotted in the floor-to-ceiling acrylic windows. Thousands of pilchard fish also shimmer and school throughout the 1.2 million gallons of saltwater amongst the sharks. The exhibit also accompanies an entirely new main entrance to the Aquarium.
