Monterey Bay Aquarium

Monterey Bay Aquarium, which is located in Monterey, California, is one of the largest and well-organized aquariums in the world.

It includes a 10 meter high aquarium for viewing California coast marine life. The aquarium, which is located near the large undersea Monterey Canyon[?], is also known world-wide as a research institution, especially in areas that deal with deep-sea marine life. Much of the biologic diversity and density seen in Monterey Bay is the result of cold and nutrient-rich water upwelling from the ocean depths via the canyon.
