Invades the Aquarium of the pacific Long Beach, Ca

“It is important to remember that the Pacific Ocean covers a quarter of the world’s surface and that each Pacific country has its own cultural, historical and ethnic identity.”-Jenny Shipley

The largest body of water on planet Earth is the Pacific Ocean. Because of the vast areas of the Northern Pacific, Tropical Pacific, and Southern California regions, the pacific ocean is home to the most diverse population of marine flora and fauna among the seven seas; as a result, research suggest at around 500 species represented by 11,000 animals. Because of Marine Biologist and Volunteers at the Aquarium of the Pacific, the public can experience and observe these animals in recreated natural habitats.

The Clownfish, also known as the Anemone Fish, prefer to stay in warm waters near the coral reef . Preferably, they live among the Anemone plant communities with who they share a symbiotic relationship. Additionally, Clownfish live up to 10 years in the wild ,however, in captivity they live as five to six years. The current conservation status of the animal is protected.

Multiple breeds of Jellyfish “jellies” on display.

The Pacific Sea Nettles also known as The West coast Nettle, in the wild can serve as a host for micro organisms or become prey. Can grow up to three feet in length. With the tentacles reaching up to 15 feet. This jelly has better control of its body movement in the ocean making it easier to evade predators.

Habitat recreation is a vital element for animal health and welfare in respects to the animals adaptations.

Rocky Reef Habitat mimics the pacific coral reef ecosystem home to a large number of fish and invertabrates.

  1. Sea Cucumber-mainly found in the Northeast Pacific Ocean in the benthic zone. Additionally, the sea cucumber does not swim well so it relies heavily on particles found in sediment in the ocean sea bottom.
Japanese sea nettle is a voracious carnivore who prefers subtropical water temperatures. Additionally, diet mostly consists of phytoplankton, larvae, and small fish.
