Come meet our fish. And our scientists. Our working aquarium gives you an up-close experience with a variety of marine animals and fish, including two touch tanks and a 135,000 gallon shark habitat. You can also witness our scientific research—as it happens—in viewable working laboratories.
Be sure to say “Hi” to some of our star residents like the manatees Hugh and Buffett, and the sea turtles Caleb, Hang Tough, Harry, Shelley and Montego. More than 100 species of marine life call Mote their home, and you are more than welcome to meet them all.
Mote Aquarium is proud to be accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and has met rigorous, professional standards for animal care, wildlife conservation and research, education and more.
