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!

Ray Lewis’ dance like you’ve never seen before…underwater!

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.

Margaret, our blue hyacinth macaw, even showed her Ravens team spirit by tearing up the rival Colts logo!
