Tennessee Aquarium Ocean Journey press kit

The Tennessee Aquarium's new Ocean Journey building opened April 29. If you don't find what you're looking for e-mail or call Thom Benson 423-785-3007 in the Aquarium's public relations department.

The $30 million expansion of the Aquarium will include 10-foot sharks, fierce barracuda and graceful stingrays that glide through amazing coral formations in the Aquarium's new Ocean Journey building. The expansion will add 700,000 gallons of saltwater exhibits to what is currently the world's largest freshwater aquarium.

Other galleries will showcase cuttlefish, squid, crabs and jellyfish. Visitors will journey to a lush tropical beach with 100 feet of "shoreline" where they can touch bamboo sharks and stingrays.
