Pacific Coral Reef
Coral reefs support an estimated 25% of all marine species, despite only occupying 1% of the ocean floor. Pacific Coral Reef—located in our North Atlantic to the Pacific exhibit—reflects the incredible diversity of life found in these unique habitats and features a variety of reef fishes, from spotfin butterflyfish to the yellow tang.
