World tour places : Wonderful Place to see all the Sea living Sharks and a Colorful fishes in one place, like the feel of go inside the mid of the Sea. Make a tour to celebrate this nice week end in San Francisco Tours, Aquarium Bay. It is a public aquarium located at Embarcadero and Beach Street, at the edge of Pier 39 in San Francisco, California. The Aquarium is focused on local aquatic animals from the San Francisco Bay and neighboring waters.

The Aquarium has over 50 sharks from species such as Sevengill sharks, leopard sharks, soupfins, spiny dogfish, brown smooth hounds and angel sharks. The Aquarium also has skates, bat rays and thousands of other animals including eels, flatfish, and rockfish, Wrasse, Gobies, Kelpfish, Pricklebacks, Ronquil, Sculpin and Sturgeons. The 65,000 square foot facility features 300 feet of crystal clear acrylic tunnels holding over 700,000 gallons of filtered Bay water that is home to over 20,000 aquatic animals, including sharks, bat rays and skates. New exhibits installed in April 2009 include an octopus exhibit, a jellies exhibit and PG&E Bay Lab, an interactive climate change exhibit.

The Aquarium is also recognized by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), a difficult-to-achieve indicator that it has met AZA's exacting standards for animal management and care, including living environments, social groupings, health and nutrition. Our research efforts include shark tagging and captive breeding programs. Our Sevengill Shark research program is aimed at helping scientists better understand how these regal animals fit into the Bay's ecosystem and what actions need to be taken to ensure they flourish.

The Aquarium is divided into three parts:
