Jennie Janssen - From Taiwan to Atlanta: The Story of Georgia Aquarium's Whale Shark Acquisitions
The whale shark is the world’s largest fish, reaching lengths of up to 66 feet. The species of shark at the Georgia Aquarium, Rhincodon typus, is a gentle filter-feeding species. Found world-wide in tropical and subtropical waters, the whale shark is gray to brown in color with light yellow or white markings and a white belly. Ms. Janssen tells how the whale shark was acquired and transported from Taiwan to Atlanta.
