Giant kelp provides food and shelter for a vibrant ecosystem.
Look closely and you'll discover an astonishing diversity of fish and invertebrates swimming here and clinging to the kelp and algae.
Listen to live audio of our Kelp Forest feeding program and watch divers hand-feed sharks, fishes and other animals. If you're lucky, a wolf-eel will emerge to gulp some squid or fish.
Our Cooking for Solutions series now offers more ways than ever throughout the year to connect with chefs, farmers, winemakers and food artisans—at the Aquarium and beyond. Tickets for our first events of the year are now on sale!
Four species of tropical lionfish are now fluttering around our Splash Zone exhibit: red, clearfin and fuzzy dwarf lionfish—and the flamboyantly named frillfin turkeyfish. Be on the lookout for the smallest of the bunch, the fuzzy dwarf. Our aquarists say it hangs out in the reef but is the first to appear at meal time!
