As the competition between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers heats up in anticipation of Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVII, the National Aquarium, Baltimore and the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco are enlisting the help of their aquatic animals to take their own friendly rivalry off the green and into the blue in the Super FISH Bowl!

Using the hashtag #SuperFishBowl, both aquariums will share their own fantasy team picks, along with behind-the-scenes images, fascinating animal facts and more with thousands of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram fans – all in excitement for the big game!

Come game day, the winner of our wager will be determined by the victorious NFL team, but both aquariums will have reason to celebrate. The losing city’s aquarium will donate $1 to the winning team’s aquarium for every ‘like’ their official #SuperFishBowl contest photo receives during the campaign. The winning donation will be made to either the National Aquarium’s Marine Animal Rescue or California Academy of Sciences’ Coral Conservation program.

To kick off the friendly wager, divers at each aquarium will don jerseys in support of their home team during daily dive presentations in their coral reef exhibits on Friday, February 1.

Be sure to stop by the Aquarium’s Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit tomorrow at 10:00 am, 11:00 am & 2:00pm to watch divers bring their purple pride under water!

It’s NFL playoff weekend and both of our National Aquarium venues are showing their support!

In honor of Baltimore icon, Ray Lewis, this National Aquarium diver performs Ray’s signature dance under water in the Aquarium’s Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit. Even looming sharks can’t dampen his purple pride!

The Playoff frenzy continues at the National Aquarium, DC where aquarist Nick proudly hails the Redskins with his team jersey. The fish behind him had to stop to admire his Redskins pride.
