Baltimore Wins AGAIN in the #SuperFISHBowl

Super FISH Bowl

The competition this weekend between Baltimore and San Francisco was fierce both on the field and in the water, as National Aquarium and California Academy of Sciences went head-to-head in the Super FISH Bowl!

The task for each team was simple: ask their respective communities to show support by “liking” the official contest photo on each organization’s Facebook page. Each “like” equated to a $1 donation (provided by an anonymous donor) to the winning city’s animal care and conservation efforts.

In addition to rallying the community, we had a lot of fun drafting our fantasy “fishball” team and stacking our “players” up against the opposition!

In the end, both competitions were CLOSE. It was certainly a tough fight from deserving teams!

We would like to sincerely thank and congratulate California Academy of Sciences on a great Super FISH Bowl. The beauty of our competition is that either outcome means a win for ocean conservation!

We would also like to thank our amazing community for rallying in support of the Aquarium, with YOUR help we were able to raise $1,310 for our animal rescue program!

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!
