"The world’s largest aquarium has sparked a heated debate among marine experts over its decision to display whale sharks and beluga whales in its tanks. The 500,000 square-foot Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, which opened in November 2005, is holding two juvenile whale sharks in captivity as well as five beluga whales.

Georgia Aquarium holds eight million gallons of water and is home to more than 100,000 marine species, including whale sharks which could grow up to more than 15m-long. This is the first time the world's largest fish has been placed in captivity outside Asia."
