Sharks

Explore this page to learn more about the sharks species at the Aquarium and our work to care for and protect them.

There's more than meets the eye when it comes to these toothy fish. While sharks are sometimes protrayed as scary beasts, they serve a vital role in our oceans. The Tennessee Aquarium is working to protect sharks, both by highlighting their natural JAWsome-ness in our exhibits and dive shows, and supporting projects coordinated with and by our fellow AZA institutions.
