Abu Dhabi is in the process of creating the world’s largest aquarium, home to over 68,000 marine animals, in collaboration with SeaWorld and it is almost ready to be visited by the public.
Scheduled to open in 2022, the massive aquarium will contain 25 million liters of water that can house thousands of marine animals such as sharks, fish, manta rays and sea turtles. The facility will also serve as a marine research, rehabilitation and return center for the United Arab Emirates.
Miral, the development company behind the aquarium project, said in August this construction is 64 percent complete. The one-of-a-kind mega aquarium will be located on Yas Island, a large entertainment hub that includes Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros. Abu Dhabi and more.
SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will span 1,969,795 square feet over five floors. There will be six separate sections on marine life, simulating the natural habitats of different marine species.

Marc Swanson, CEO of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, said in a report, âWe are honored to partner with Miral to provide customers with unforgettable experiences of SeaWorld and our important mission to Yas Island and region. SeaWorld Abu Dhabi joins our North American parks in our mission and commitment to conservation efforts around the world. “
However, SeaWorld came under heavy criticism after the 2013 documentary. “Black fish” highlighted the controversial practices he employed to keep killer whales in captivity. The Orlando Weekly noted that no large marine mammals were included in the concept art for the Abu Dhabi Aquarium.
