Two New Sharks Make Waves at Newport Aquarium

Shark Summer is still going on at Newport Aquarium.

This year, there are two new sandbar sharks making their debut, hailing all the way from Newport Aquarium’s sister aquarium in Camden, New Jersey. Guests will be asked to submit name ideas for the two young sandbar sharks, which will grow to be 8-feet long and 220 pounds!

Don’t miss out on celebrating all things shark including petting sharks, crossing Shark Bridge and learning tons of cool facts during Shark Summer at Newport Aquarium (1 Aquarium Way, Newport, Ky). Visit or call 859-261-7444 for more information.
