Marine scientists were working at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) as early as 1910, and helped by donations from the ever-generous Scripps family, the institute has grown to be one of the world’s largest marine research institutions. It is now a part of UC San Diego. Off N Torrey Pines Rd, the aquarium has brilliant displays. The Hall of Fishes has more than 60 fish tanks, simulating marine habitats from the Pacific Northwest to tropical seas.
