Bubble Tuna

I took this photo of the deep water exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium from the upper viewing area. This huge tank holds big tuna and other fish found in deep ocean water. It's the same tank where the first great white shark to survive in captivity was displayed.
The bubbles you see in the photo are created near the glass so that when the aquarium is empty or not that busy, the fish know there's a barrier and don't run into it.
I like this photo because it conveys the immense size of the tank and how it draws viewers in.

Thanks for the comments.
As I've said before, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is an amazing place. I think it has the largest viewing window for an aquarium in the world. Definetely worth the trip.
