Do people see aquariums as educational places to be avoided unless it gets them out of a day of school? I tend to see them as tourist destinations, something you must see when you’re near one. San Francisco’s Aquarium of the Bay is my most proximal public aquarium, nestled in touristy Pier 39. I was there for the first time two weeks ago for a job interview. I didn’t get the job, but I did get free admission to the aquarium. I would have liked to take the behind the scenes tour, but I didn’t want to ask for a free tour. Regular patrons pay extra on top of the admission, but since I never paid initially, I didn’t know if I should ask if I could just pay the extra. Here are some native Moon Jellyfish (Aurelia aurita, wiki) for your amusement.
I even have a Youtube video of the jellyfish in motion. I also have five more aquarium short videos, so please look at my channel.
