 Hello,  everyone.  My  name  is  Kamran,  and  I  am  a  helper  here  at  Santa  Monica  Filtration.  I  am  also  an  aquarist  intern  at  the  Santa  Monica  Pier  Public  Aquarium:

 I’ll  be  giving  periodic  updates  regarding  various  going-ons  at  the  aquarium,  and  if  you  have  any  requests  for  things  you  want  me  to  find  out  about  our  creatures,  feel  free  to  share.  I  hope  you  all  enjoy!

 The  time  has  come  for  my  first  official  update.  The  Santa  Monica  Pier  Aquarium  is  nestled  beneath  the  very  front  of  the  pier,  with  a  nice  big  aquarium  banner  for  good  measure.  Every  creature  on  display  is  native  to  Santa  Monica  Bay,  with  a  few  exceptions  (ex:  El  Nino  caused  some  Pacific  seahorses  to  appear  in  our  waters,  which  were  then  collected  and  given  their  own  exhibit).  Obviously,  the  goal  is  to  give  visitors  a  sense  of  what's  lurking  right  beneath  the  bay,  and  to  drive  the  point  home,  most  of  our  main  exhibits  are  modeled  after  a  specific  ecosystem  (including  the  underside  of  the  pier  itself).
 
 Attached  to  this  post  are  a  few  photos  showing  the  aquarium’s  position  in  relation  to  the  pier,  the  entrance,  and  some  of  our  exhibits.  All  of  these  photos  are  mine,  except  for  the  aerial  shot.  If  you  have  any  questions,  please  don't  hesitate  to  ask!

 Hello  again,  everyone.  One  of  our  swell  sharks  recently  emerged  from  its  embryo,  so  for  this  week’s  update,  I  thought  I’d  give  a  rundown  of  how  the  aquarium  handles  its  shark  pups.
 
 
 
 
 
 Currently,  we  have  two  kinds  of  sharks  on  display:  swell  sharks  (first  photo)  and  horn  sharks  (second  photo).  Although  both  our  sharks  have  been  known  to  multiply,  the  swell  sharks  do  it  far  more  prolifically  and  will  hence  be  the  main  focus  of  this  post.
 
 
 
 These  are  what  swell  shark  embryos  look  like.  These  three  specifically  are  on  public  display,  but  we  have  many  more  in  the  back  room.
 
 
 
 When  a  pup  emerges  from  its  embryo,  it’s  immediately  moved  to  the  quarantine  tank  seen  in  this  photo.  As  you  can  see,  we  have  no  shortage  of  them  (and  in  comparison,  there  are  only  three  horn  shark  embryos  that  haven’t  even  hatched  yet).
 
 
 
 Several  things  can  happen  to  the  pups  depending  on  the  circumstances.  Sometimes,  they’re  moved  to  the  public  exhibit  (pictured  above),  which  is  what  happened  with  our  newest  pup.  Other  times  they’re  donated  to  other  aquariums,  and  still  other  times  they’re  kept  until  they’re  large  enough  for  the  primary  shark  tank.  It  really  depends  on  how  much  room  we  have  and  where.
 
 On  a  side  note,  one  of  our  adult  swell  sharks  sprayed  me  with  a  mouthful  of  water  once.  It  was  unpleasant.
 
 -Kamran
