The Monterey Bay Aquarium is a nonprofit aquarium founded in 1984. Located on the site of a former sardine cannery on Cannery Row, it holds thousands of plants and animals, representing more than 600 species on display. The aquarium benefits from a high circulation of fresh ocean water which is obtained through pipes which pump it in continuously from Monterey Bay.
