Blacktip Reef

National Aquarium

Located in the heart of the National Aquarium’s original facility, the Blacktip Reef is a focal point for 1.5 million visitors annually. The exhibit features new underwater viewing areas and a Pacific oceanic scene complete with a dynamic collection of corals, reefs, and aquatic animals. Design required input from diverse teams within the National Aquarium, while construction included unique challenges—such as the installation of a highly specialized glass wall shipped from Japan; quarantining of animals shipped from around the world; and the fabrication of over 3,000 individual coral components derived from Pacific habitats.
