CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – Sharks are the top predator in the ocean, and they will be a focus at the Texas State Aquarium from August 9-16 as we celebrate the 27th season of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week with special shark programming and events. Brand new to this year’s festivities is the addition of a shark-themed live chat program featuring our own resident shark experts, as well as Moody Gardens Aquarium staff. This panel of shark experts will be available via Google Hangout or in person at the Aquarium to answer all of your questions about sharks.
