New and Familiar Faces in the Tropical Oceans Exhibit

The New England Aquarium's transformation is taking place behind the scaffolding and below the water line. Follow this link to learn more about the construction happening in the Giant Ocean Tank. And here's what's happening in the temporary display, the Tropical Oceans Exhibit.

It may not look like it now, but there is a lot happening in the temporary exhibit where all the GOT animals are living now. Here's a special look at life below the water line!

The GOT will be home to over 100 species when it reopens early this summer! This video introduces just a few of those species—like fish in the grunts family, a short bigeye, a balloonfish, spadefishes, a queen trigger, fish in the jacks family, a sargassum trigger, a Southern stingray, and of course Myrtle, the green sea turtle, and her friend (word used lightly) Carolina, the loggerhead sea turtle. And if you look closely, you'll see some of our transport devices currently residing inside the tray in this video.

Myrtle, like our marathon team runners, has been carbo loading recently to get ready for her GOT reintroduction.
Stay tuned, we'll have a lot more to say about all the new animals that will join Myrtle the GOT!
