Kuroshio Sea – 2nd Largest Aquarium Tank

In the video below, you get to check out the second largest aquarium in the world, shot at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan. The main tank, called the “Kuroshio Sea,” holds 7,500-cubic meters, approximately 1,981,290 gallons, of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters. In the tank, whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species. Check out the video below.

Give this some time to load before watching, otherwise you won’t have smooth playback.

And just in case you were wondering, this was shot using a Canon 5DMKII with a 28-135mm lens, while the music is Please Don’t Go by Barcelona.

And seriously, this is what is in our oceans. Let’s be a little more sustainable with out living habits, eh?
