Giving aquaria

Step into the Magnificent Sea to explore the Gulf's intertidal, estuarine and ocean zones. That is the vision for the renovation design of the aquaria at The University of Texas Marine Science Institute’s
Marine Science Education Center. The current aquaria and exhibits are outdated and have not been renovated since their construction in 1983.

The new exhibits will triple the volumes of aquaria with complementary exhibits that discuss how healthy marine and coastal habitats benefit marine life.

Cost estimate for renovation and equipping facilities with research infrastructure is $3 million.
