Business Description: 
The Aquarium & Shark Lab is the first inland aquarium in NC, opening its doors 9/2011. The Aquarium houses and cares for over 275 marine fish & invertebrates, along with 2 dozen "adopted" reptiles. Our 2,000-gallon shark study tank is the focus of research being followed by the Field Museum in Chicago. Divers enter the tank during public hours to hand feed and establish behavioral imprinting with our small sharks and rays. Feed is at 1:30 pm Thurs-Sat. The Aquarium & shark Lab is noted for its innovative education programs and marine science internships. Team ECCO welcomes visitors of all ages. We are wheelchair accessible and happy to make adaptations for special needs learners and visitors.
