The New England Aquarium at Central Wharf is preparing for a new shark and ray exhibit due to open in April 2011. The Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank will have a 25,000 tank with shallow edges and windows to give visitors a close up view. It will be the largest shark and ray touch tank on the East Coast.
Recently, a batch of rays were moved to a holding facility in Quincy while they wait for the exhibit to be constructed. (Click on the video clip below.)
