Love sharks? Last night we added a beautiful, 141-pound sevengill shark to the Monterey Bay Habitats exhibit. One reason that the Aquarium displays and releases large sharks—like our new sevengill—is to increase awareness of the challenges sharks face worldwide.

We recently released a healthy sevengill shark (Notorynchus cepedianus) into Monterey Bay. It thrived during its stay, gaining 13 pounds in four months. We still have two females on exhibit. These sharks help educate thousands of visitors about the power and beauty of large sharks—and the dangers they face in the wild.
