The largest fish in the world is on public view in only one place on the planet outside of Asia...the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Whale Shark (pictured here, center) is that fish and it's one of seven species of sharks in the "Ocean Voyager" exhibit.

Visitors' exploration of Georgia Aquarium doesn't have to end when they leave. The Aquarium's website is information's filled with videos, webcams, databases, announcements, the latests updates on their conservation efforts, and lots of factoids.

For example, did you know that the viewing window of the Ocean Voyager exhibit is 27 feet high and 63 feet wide? Did you know that it's two feet thick? Did you know that the Ocean Voyager tank is the largest indoor exhibit of fish in the world? All true and there's lots more to learn on the website!
