The Miami Seaquarium was opened on September 24, 1955 by Fred D. Coppock and Capt. W.B. Gray. It is the longest operating oceanarium in the United States.
Accompanying note: "Porpoises leap high out of the water to take food from the feeding attendant. In this huge window-lined tank thousands of colorful tropical fishes are on constant parade for the visitors. The Miami Seaquarium is located just 15 minutes from downtown Miami on the Rickenbacker Causeway."
