The Vancouver Aquarium Jelly Cam

Several aquariums and zoos are streaming their exhibits live for everyone to enjoy. These aquarium webcams offer a small glimpse of what the exhibits have to offer. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find one that provides views of their cichlid exhibits. You can find hobbyists that set up webcams of their tanks, but more often than not the webcams are off-line or there isn’t much to see. Despite the lack of cichlid representation, the webcams at some of the public aquariums are impressive to watch and offer some variety. The Vancouver Aquarium currently streams several exhibits including a jellyfish, beluga whales, penguins and sea otters.

Monterey Bay Aquarium Open Sea Webcam

The Monterey Bay Aquarium has an amazing webcam featuring their 1 million gallon, open-ocean exhibit. In it you can see hammerhead sharks, bluefin tuna, pelagic rays and giant green sea turtles swimming together. In the bottom right corner of the still picture above is a swirling mass of some type of fish. Every once in a while a shark swims into it and scatters the smaller fish. Other Monterey Bay Aquarium webcams include a kelp cam and penguin cam.

Other webcams: Aquarium of the Pacific.
