Aquarium in Jamestown

In 1965, a small group of scientists gathered to create artificial seawater at the Aquarium of Niagara. They wanted to open an inland aquarium that could host the same types of sea creatures found on the coast, and so they applied their technology on a large scale. Today, the Aquarium of Niagara pumps this synthetic seawater through tanks hosting a variety of indigenous salt-water dwellers, including sea horses, harbor seals, sea lions, and Navy SEALS. While visitors marvel at both the salt-water and freshwater creatures, they learn about diverse aquatic terrain and conservation efforts. A weekly schedule of animal activities allows guests to witness animals in action, from California sea-lion and goldfish training to penguin and shark feedings.
