Spot sharks, rays and other fishes as they cruise through our rocky reef.

Sevengill sharks, leopard sharks, spiny dogfish and the elusive Pacific angel shark all dwell in our Monterey Bay Habitats exhibit — like they do just beyond our walls in the cold waters of the bay. Designed with sharks in mind, this exhibit's 90-foot-long hourglass shape gives our big sharks plenty of room to glide and turn.

Watch carefully and you might see big skates and bat rays pass by the window, just like their shark kin. Plus, keep your eyes peeled for sturgeon coasting through the water, rockfish and giant sea bass relaxing by the reef, and flatfish nestling on the sandy seafloor.

A Shark's-Eye View

When Aquarium scientist Sal Jorgensen and his colleagues placed camera tags on sharks in South Africa, they discovered something unexpected about white sharks and kelp forests. In our video, learn about these scientists' research — and see the ocean from a shark's perspective!

Clash of the Titans

White sharks. Orcas. These legendary ocean predators need no introduction. But how do they get along? A new study by our white shark researchers details what happens when two top predators cross paths.
