J. Musselman Construction, General Contractor for the Shark Shallows exhibit at the South Carolina Aquarium attended the Exclusive Preview on May 5th, 2015 for a sneak peek with invited guests. This new exhibit is a 20,000-gallon kidney shaped pool and is a hands-on attraction for the Aquarium. Shark Shallows is home to 5 Bonnethead Sharks, 28 Cownose Rays and 3 large Southern Stingrays, all are native to the Lowcountry. For kids young and old it truly is a unique and wonderful exhibit where you can reach in the tank and touch or just view under the water from the viewing windows. We want to thank all of our Subcontractors who helped make this unique project a success.

The Shark Shallows project is the construction of a new touch-tank exhibit located on the terrace overlooking the Charleston harbor at the South Carolina Aquarium. The new enclosure is an hour glass shaped tank which will be used to house marine wildlife for the public interaction. The tank will have a public walk up ramp, and education platform for the aquarium personnel which will be constructed of reinforcing steel and concrete. The inside of the tank will receive a sprayed in waterproofing which will maintain the integrity of the system. Overhead will be an aluminum canopy supported by structural steel columns and beams. To add to the nautical view of the exhibit and the harbor, new custom sails will be fabricated and installed along the water’s edge.
There will be a new life support system constructed to support the wellbeing of the marine wildlife. This system consists of detailed plumbing to and from the tank. The electrical portion of this project will consist of controls for the life support system as well as the decorative lighting of the exhibit. There will be a new sprinkler system put into place to ensure the safety of the public, personnel and the exhibit.
Due to the salt environment, all structural steel has been galvanized. All handrails as well as miscellaneous metal items are a combination of galvanized and stainless steel to ensure this project will outlast the elements.
