Aquarium Opening Shrimp Boat Exhibit

The Oklahoma Aquarium opens the Reasor’s Shrimp Boat and Cove in the Biodiversity Gallery at 10 a.m Thursday.
The Reasor’s Shrimp Boat and Cove is complete with the sounds of seagulls squawking with a brightly colored backdrop. The boat and adjoining tide pools house shrimp, horseshoe crabs, urchins and other animals to touch and feed.
The Oklahoma Aquarium thanks Reasor’s for generously sponsoring the new exhibit, which carries a strong conservation message related to seafood and research, said Teri Bowers
COO and executive director. The renovation of the Biodiversity Gallery is the first half of a two year plan to update two Aquarium Galleries by introducing more interactive opportunities for guests.
In its seventh year of operation, the Oklahoma Aquarium continues to grow. Construction begins on enhancing the Adaptation Gallery which will include the addition of a crawl-through tank with acrylic “pop-ups” for children and adults to see eye-to-eye with fish from the Amazon.
Meanwhile, work continues on additions to the Siegfried Families Shark Adventure and on fundraising to construct a sea turtle exhibit.
