This picture shows the Outer Bay/Open Sea Exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It is one of the largest tanks in the world! The main viewing window is 56.5 feet long, 17 feet tall, and 13 inches thick. The window weighs 78,000 pounds, and was lowered into place by a specially built crane. Fresh ocean water from the Pacific is constantly circulated throughout the 1.3 million gallon exhibit. The Outer Bay animals eat half a ton of food per week!
