"Monster Fish: In Search of the Last River Giants", a National Geographic exhibition, is set to open at the Tennessee Aquarium this fall.
The exhibit will open on October 1st, and will be located in the River Place building adjacent to the ticketing center in the Aquarium Plaza.
The Tennessee Aquarium and River City Company Reel are partnering to give guests a chance to look deeper into underwater wildlife.
The new exhibit will feature life-sized sculptures, interactive exhibits, and videos from the field.
Dr. Zeb Hogan, aquatic ecologist and National Geographic Fellow, said the exhibition will make the Tennessee Aquarium a one stop shop for all things "monster fish".
“The Tennessee Aquarium is the perfect home for this exhibition – together with the River Giants exhibit in River Journey, and the aquarium’s conservation activities such as the Saving the Sturgeon program, visitors will have a chance to experience and learn about these fish in a totally immersive way,” said Hogan.
The exhibit will be in Chattanooga through the beginning of March.
Members of the Tennessee Aquarium and guests with general admission will have free entry.
